    It was brutal for a couple of years, he got booed in every US city every time he touched the ball. They still do it in Columbus. It didnít affect Jozy as much, he revelled in being the monster.

    There are USMNT supporters who believe to this day that MB and Jozy dumped that Trinidad game to avoid a trip for an intercontinental playoff to Sydney, which would have happened in the middle of the 2017 MLS playoffs.
    After Drew Moor picked up his major injury in 2018 that basically started to wind down his career (made him less available and less consistent in playing time) MB never had a competent CB leader behind him to manage more of the defensive responsibilities. Since then MB has been hesitant to attack oncoming opposition with the aggression he had in prior years, I'd chalk that up to lack of confidence in those operating behind him.
