CanMNT: Luca Gasparotto looks to translate successful Airdrieonians loan to first national team cap

CanMNT: Gasparotto hopes Airdrieonians loan leads to first cap

Luca Gasparotto likes to live in the moment.

For the 20-year-old center back (above, right), who finds himself at a turning point in his career, that attitude makes perfect sense. He isn’t dwelling on the past, nor is he getting too wrapped up in the future.

After three years spent predominantly in the youth ranks at Glasgow Rangers, Gasparotto joined Airdrieonians in Scotland’s League One on loan this season. He flourished at Airdrie, becoming a fixture on the team’s backline, and had his loan extended to season’s end.

Welcome back to my Thursday Q&A series, where I pick one particular topic to write about - today's being the current funk of the US national team - and focus primarily upon that.

However... you should feel free to ask about anything game-related (MLS, USL, NASL, USMNT, Canadian MNT, whatever) in the comments section below, and I'll be around for the next several hours to answer your questions.

NEW YORK – Mix Diskerud is not in the mix with the US national team for their friendlies against Denmark and Switzerland, and New York City FC coach Jason Kreis is perplexed.

“I was very surprised, but you never know,” Kreis said. “I don’t know what the objectives of these two games are for the coach and what he’s looking to achieve or who he’s looking to look at that might be new into that program.”

I'm going to save the "fitness" talk for last. Because we know that's what people are going to bring up in the wake of yet another late collapse from the USMNT, this time in a 3-2 loss at Denmark.

Here are three things to take away from a performance that ranged from ugly to opportunistic and back again:

AARHUS, Denmark – For the first time in his US national team career, midfielder Michael Bradley captained the side in a match.

Though the 3-2 loss to Denmark in a friendly on Wednesday night wasn't the result Bradley was looking for, it was still a banner night for the star.

AARHUS, Denmark – It was another late collapse for the US national team, and it cost them two leads in a 3-2 loss Wednesday night against Denmark at NRGi Park.

And once again head coach Jurgen Klinsmann was left explaining why the US broke down over the last 10 minutes under the quick-footed Danish passing game, punctuated by a Nicklas Bendtner hat trick with his final two goals coming in the 83rd and 91st minutes.
