    > San Antonio FC extended their unbeaten streak to 14 matches (10 wins, 4 draws)...with the victory, San Antonio FC has matched their win total from the entire 2016 season…SAFC has not lost at home since September 10, 2016 against Saint Louis FC
    > SAFC saw its shutout streak end tonight in the 27th minute, giving the club a final streak of 672 minutes without conceding a goal in USL play…the streak marks the second longest all-time in USL history behind the 2016 RGV Toros who played 758 minutes without allowing an opponent to score…SAFC still currently leads the league with 10 clean sheets and the conceded goal tonight was the first for the club since April 25 in Seattle
    > San Antonio FC midfielder Kris Tyrpak recorded his first brace for the club, and first since Cesar Elizondo turned the trick on April 28 in Portland…Elizondo also recorded the third and only other brace on the season on April 15 vs. Reno 1868 FC at Toyota Field…the two-goal game was the first for Tyrpak since he scored two against Whitecaps FC 2 on October 15, 2016 in the 2016 USL playoffs with Swope Park Rangers…Tyrpak has recorded three goals and two assists in 13 appearances on the season
    > SAFC forward Aly Alberto Hassan and midfielder Billy Forbes earned their first and fourth assists respectively on the night…Forbes’ four assists are the most on the club, while Hassan recorded his first since September 10, 2016 against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds while with the Charlotte Independence
    > SAFC midfielder Devin Vega scored his second goal of the season and first since April 25 in Seattle…the goal marked the San Antonio native’s first ever tally at Toyota Field in front of his hometown fans
    > SAFC defender Cyprian Hedrick made his second USL appearance (second start) for SAFC tonight…this game marked the 100th career appearance for Hedrick in USL play…The centerback made 74 appearances with OKC Energy FC from 2014-2016 after playing in 24 games with the now-defunct Phoenix FC in 2013

    Thoughts on the first set of matches in the confederations cup?

    For me I liked seeing Putin show but I honestly thought it was more pressure on the Russian team. Lol
    I really liked the Portugal Mexico match all of it VAR still something we're just going to have to get used to I guess.
    My surprise so far if you will is Cameroon and how they played.
    Australia putting up a fight was nice

    I have no idea why, going into it, some considered Germany to be favorites. Only one player on this German Confederations Cup roster was a starter at the 2014 World Cup, and altogether, only 3 of the 23-man roster represented Germany at the World Cup, the other two being reserves. Chile, Portugal, Mexico and a couple other nations are really taking the tournament seriously, brought essentially their premier rosters, and are in it to win it. Löw is only thinking about the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and using this tournament as a way to get a look at a good number of younger players against teams like Chile, Portugal, and Mexico to see whether he might wanna promote 3 or 4 of them to the World Cup roster for next year. Yeah, Australia put up a decent fight, but mistakes by a youthful German side led to both of their goals, and as mentioned, we're looking at Germany's 3rd and 4th string out there.

    As for Cameroon, athletically, they always bring talented squads, but the 2-0 score was pretty much what I expected. And I did watch that game, and didn't really see what the announcers and some others apparently saw because they talked as though the game was even. Yeah, it was still scoreless at the 80-minute mark (which is a surprise), but Chile dominated possession 66% to 34% and had twice as many shots on goal also. It just wasn't as even as some people are making it out to be, in my opinion. Chile had, I believe, 3 goals called back for offsides, and just didn't capitalize on some of their opportunities as they normally would against some other teams because of Cameroon's speed.
