Atlanta United manager implies no change in starting XI

0

Franco, making his eighth start, has been a solid player for the team, but he’s prone to making a big mistake almost every game. Sometimes the team is punished, like Sunday, and sometimes it is not. Franco is very good in the air and with the ball at his feet and with his distribution. Should Pineda decide to bench Franco for next week’s game in Nashville, the only healthy center back left is George Campbell, a 20-year-old who has seven starts this season and 24 career appearances.

Pineda is right. Shuttleworth is a 14-year-old veteran who made his fourth start due to Brad Guzan’s season-ending Achilles injury. Shuttleworth said he should have done better on the first goal. Rios Novo, just 19, is on loan from Lanus in Argentina. He has yet to appear in an MLS game this season.

“There were different moments where each of us can do better, or we can do a lot better on the first goal,” Shuttleworth said. “So stupid mistakes at the moment that cost us stupid goals when, if I take the first goal, we dominate the game, we have all the possession, it comes out of nowhere. So it’s frustrating, but it’s fair something we need to try to improve.
