    Ives, why isn’t the US participating in the soccer tournament at the Pan Am games in Mexico this fall (October)? It is a U22 tournament so it would be a nice shot to see some youngsters and maybe players on the verge in the 20-21 year old bracket.

    Shame we’re not there since our U20′s crashed out of the qualifying for the U20 WC.

    Some of the worst defending I’ve seen on both of those goals. wow.

  3. Tim says:

    Nice freekick to set up the goal

  4. Eafraco says:

    Excellent free-kick by USA. Really was a thing of beauty. But agreed with the post above – defending from the Americans was a fright.

  5. tim says:

    What defending?

  6. Tim says:

    Doyle does seem to have a nose for the ball, or at least puts himself in position to score (think thats 3 games in a row)

  7. Pgloerse says:

    Loved that Doyle didn’t try and kill it into the net. Nice composure. Left Back looks like no help in the immediate future…that last goal for France was a gimme.

    All the credit goes to Kelyn Rowe for the U.S. goal.

  9. bryan says:

    wow, that defending was terrible! great free kick though.

  10. Ricky B. Free says:

    u-8 defending. That was horrible.

    who was keeping FRA#2 onside? some bad defending!!!

  12. brad says:

    far side! far friggin side boys! are we really that bad at ball watching and getting sucked out of position or does france have forwards that make runs beyond their maturity?

  13. understood says:

    i guess those race quotas havent gone into effect for france yet

  14. Michael Stypulkoski says:

    Great save from the French keeper, and some horrible defending by the Americans, particularly on the second goal.

  15. joel says:

    terrible defending

  16. Dainja says:

    wow, what’s with the Godfather music starting up at 1:55?? Its almost like they knew…it was bout to be murda for the US.

  17. abc says:

    Embarrassing defending.

  18. FulhamNick says:

    Wow seriously terrible defending…most of these guys are professionals or close to it and they are flocking to the ball like a bunch of 10 year olds
