Jim’s Thoughts on Columbus

“That’s the thing, everyone will say they’re struggling because of where they are in the table. But they’re still damn good. They’re a really good team. Gregg [Berhalter] sticks to his gameplan; they have a true style,” Curtin said. “They are a team that plays an attacking style and can leave them vulnerable at the back. They pass out of tight spots, so we’ll have to be on our game and press them the right way. They’re still a dangerous team.”
