Guzan’s bid for extra inches costs USMNT a Gold Cup Final appearance

There has been a plethora of soccer this summer, and straight after the Women’s World Cup was the Gold Cup which unfortunately the USMNT lost in the Semi Final. The winning goal came from a situation that all us goalkeepers should be aware of as Brad Guzan stepped outside of his penalty box whilst throwing the ball out – The resulting free kick was scored.

See Guzan’s throw below, with the match highlights below that.

This season, I also had one of my goalkeepers also get penalized for hand ball whilst punting close to the line. My advise – It’s not worth risking the extra couple of inches as Brad Guzan saw, the reward is far less than the potential risk – In his case a place in the Gold Cup Final.
