It’s the battle of the lame defenses, so far.
It’s online at Univision’s site.
75 minutes in, still 3-2 in Mexico’s favor. A bit of diving and play-acting, but not much more in the last little while.
Mexico, 4 - 2. I posted too soon. Pathetic.
Ow! That one’ll go in the soccer basics book.
For sure. What was the half time speech? They haven’t recovered since being stunned by Mexico tying it up in quick succession. They looked almost like they came back worse.
A little over five minutes left, and Mexico is up, 4 - 2.
Estados Unidos de Mexico 4;
United States of America 2.
Does this count as a home or away game for us? The LA crowd was of almost one voice for Mexico.
That’s an L.A. tradition. El Tri has been the home team for twenty years.
When I watched the prior U.S. game, I had some hope because it looked like they’d finally gotten the midfield to realize its function was more than just playing the ball into the center then turn it over. Apparently they forgot all that today.
Chicarito gave them fits the whole day, glad he’s on my English side.
Completely unacceptable...an absolute disgrace to blow a 2-0 lead. Bradley has been just getting by for years....time to make the change before World Cup qualifying starts.
I don’t doubt it. I can’t imagine it helped our side though.
Yeah, that’s well spotted. It did just look like to me they wanted to be seen doing something productive until they could turn the ball over, some of the time, instead of coming through with aggressive ways to get past and through to the goal.
What’s your English team? I don’t follow it that closely though sometimes I pay attention to Scottish Premier League.
The only good news is that it looks like Freddy Adu is finally ready for prime time.
I’m a Manchester United supporter (English Premier League). I’ve been watching Hernandez since he was in Mexico. When United acquired him, I took a lot of stick from my fellow supporters for predicting he’d be one of their best acquisitions in years. I remind them of that frequently. He’s high energy and has an instinctive knowledge of position. Even when he doesn’t score, the threat he poses creates opportunities for others.
I saw almost no play on the wings for us today.
Maybe we’ll able to call him Freddie Can Du some day.
And the U17s just lost....to Uzbekistan; YIKES!
Would sound much less bad if you were to say USA just lost to the group winner.
Oh yeah, they’re a real power house, what was I thinking...
Well, its better than watching men play a little girl’s game from England, 7ft beanpoles or 300 pound men play a game while real men play rugby.
Baseball: ‘athletes’ in striped pyjamas chew gum whilst nothing actually ever happens.
