You know it’s was a bad game when your goalkeeper allows three goals and is still the best player on the field. Tim Howard may have been a bit questionable on the first goal, but he made some great saves later in the match and kept the scoreline from getting too ugly. Maybe we just didn’t want to give the man of the match to a field player after such an ugly game, but we do think Timmy is deserving. Michael Bradley gets our vote for runner up for at least giving the impression that he cared about the game for the full 90 minutes.
Goat of the Game: Bob Bradley. Too many questionable player selections. Yet another match where the US seems to take the field without the proper motivation or gameplan, allowing their customary early goal. Yes, Beasley was atrocious, and yes, Kljestian wasn’t much better, but really, neither of these players should have ever even been on the field.
