In Topic: USA v. Mexico. USA wins in Azteca

After about 5 minutes of look up, I found all of these complimenting the US defense, especially Cameron.

Edit: would like to add there is an ESPN insider article titled "Cameron handles Chicarito"

Unbelievable defense? Stellar defense of Cameron? Chicarito ran unmarked half the match! He missed at least 2 sitters and fumbled away a few other good chances. It was bad all around. It's perfectly fine to sit back and defend in Azteca but when you do get the ball you must counter with conviction. Donovan's goal vs. Brazil in the confederations cup was a text book example. Our guys couldn't pass, had poor touch and poor technique. Good on them, they beat a much more talented side. I just think it's a shame that's what we are working with.

We're just going to have to completely disagree, because I believe Chicarito was very well covered. Also, I haven't looked up the player ratings, but I can guarantee you that among all the ratings out there, Cameron and Howard will clearly be the highest rated.

You seriously wanted to start a thread about the US winning only to complain about it. I don't think you realize how snobish you are coming off right now. Imagine if you made a thread like this after the Panthers won a game where they were the worse team. Here is a list of the important players not player for the US: Clint Dempsey, Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley, Carlos Bocanegra, Steve Cherundolo, Timothy Chandler. Klinsmann went into the game with the purpose of winning it. The only way to win that game with the weakened side was to bunker and wait for their opportunity. And it worked.

And instead of complaining about generals, how about you give specifics? Like Torres's inability to even get the ball, or Beckerman's poor passing, etc. And you could also talk about more positive things instead of just using Howard's goalkeeping as an excuse for the win. He had to make TWO big saves. There weren't that many major chances, mainly because of the stellar defense of Cameron, which is a good sign of the future for our most glaring need.

Also, this will definitely not be hyped for a week on ESPN. It'll get a minute of coverage during Sportscenter's hour long show and will be on their cover page for one day, before it's pulled for more "American" sports.

TL;DR- STOP COMPLAINING AND ENJOY A WIN

Michael Bradley to AS Roma. For now, that is the highest level club that an American plays for. That could change depending where Dempsey goes. Also, there are rumors of Donovan making a permanent move to Everton.
