Photo Essay: USMNT Takes on Bosnia & Herzegovina

2 minutes, 5 seconds Read

Here at YA, the players and coaches are the most frequent contributors on the field that we like to follow and analyze, but we can’t forget those who are responsible for bringing us the beautiful images of the beautiful game in action.

For the recent USMNT game against Bosnia & Herzegovina, we had the pleasure of teaming up with a high-quality professional photographer, who provided us with a collection of images of the game in action.

Freelance photographer Matt Mathai, who calls Sante Fe, New Mexico home, was at the game and shares some of those photographs with our Yanks Abroad readers. Matt has shot for DC United, Howler Magazine, The Shin Guardian and currently, as well as many other freelance outlets.

You have already seen several of Matt’s photos in our recent articles covering the thoughts of Gregg Berhalter, Matt Turner and Cole Bassett, but here we are happy to present more of his wonderful work in YA’s first-ever photo essay.
