Podcast: Dike wants Nigeria to exact US revenge on Ghana




Wednesday, February 6

US Against Them

The Hex has begun. And it's going to be a wild ride for the US national team. The guys break down just how hard it'll be with a road trip right off the bat, which games will be the toughest and when exactly the Yanks should expect to book at ticket to Brazil – if at all. Plus, what happens if Nigeria and the US face off next summer? It's Bright Dike's personal nightmare. We sit down with the Portland forward in preseason camp in Arizona to talk his future with the Super Eagles, World Cup qualifying, how to make it in the minors and what 2013 will bring for the Timbers.

Meet the MttM team

Matt Doyle is an editor at MLSsoccer.com and pens the popular Armchair Analyst column. He enjoys a good glass of scotch, the Pixies blasted at 11, intelligent Twitter conversations with lunatic supporters groups and long walks on the beach. He takes accusations of "curmudgeon" as high praise.

Matt Tomaszewicz, a.k.a. "The Shin Guardian," works in tech and has an unhealthy obssession with the Beautiful Game. He's currently teaching his 2-year-old daughter how to beat the offside trap. When he's not seeking out venture capital, he's on the hunt for San Francisco's perfect cup of coffee.

Jonah Freedman is the host of March to the Match and is the managing editor of MLSsoccer.com. He also writes The Throw-In column every Thursday and stresses every day over the merits of AP Style vs. Chicago Style. He is a devout Earthquakes fan. Or is it LA Galaxy fan? The world may never know.
