US 2 Ghana 1; what an intense game!
Bring on Portugal!
Was a great game to watch.
AWESOME GAME!!! Almost ripped the TV off the wall when they tied it up though...
Not only that, but a Sounder nailed the first goal. Home town AND homeland pride? HECK YES.
The US is going to have to play a lot better if they are going anywhere.Ghana carried the play a lot of the time.
Bummed I missed it, but glad they beat Ghana. The wife was giving me play by play, as she's the real soccer fan in the family.
Ghana controlled the ball most of the game, but I think that was some of the game plan. They didn't want to get into a wide open game with Ghana so the just clogged up the middle. This was of course aided by the early goal. Once Ghana scored you saw the US start making more runs and openng up the game a bit. Still, it was pretty tense to watch.
In American Futbol ....Keith Price was cut today from the Seahawks.
Glad the U.S. won, but Ghana appeared to own 80 minutes of the game. Let's see what happens next.
Now give me some sweaty dudes wrestling around...wait...that came out wrong. I mean freestyle wrestling...err...never mind.
For show ponies light in the loafers..
More important - this weekend it's the US vs. Canada in Rugby.
I don't see either side beating the All Blacks at any time soon, but both are getting more competitive.
Should be a good game !
Great game; great result. The loss of Jozy Altidore will hurt in coming games, I fear.
I scared the shit out of my dog screaming and running around after john Anthony brook's goal. I've been a wreck all day, and I still haven't settled down.
In other good news, Portugal should be good and demoralized after getting their shit packed by Germany and possibly losing three starters
Portugal will likely be re-organized and out for blood. It won't help them to be out a key player or 3 but their roster goes pretty deep. Go USA!
Brazil v Mexico should be a treat to watch.
This was a great win and a gritty performance by the US Team and we did have quite a bit of luck on our side given how much possession Ghana had. One of the best matches so far in the World Cup. But man do we have a tough road ahead.
Portugal lost Pepe and Coentrao - their defense is crippled. One more win for the USA before getting slaughtered by Germany. But GO HOLLAND!!!
Brazil v Mexico will be awesome.
Shitty game but the 3 points is what counts. Big win for the boys!
It is ok to lose the battles as long as you win the war, which is exactly what the US did.
Definitely not a bad game for the US. 2 subs early on in the game and we were still able to see the game out. Our coach couldn't pull all the strings he wanted to because of the injuries. I think the coach would have been able to change the ball possession around if we didn't have the 2 injuries.
