Brazil not the only country in this continent with a dumb populist leftist president: :thdn:

Obama's centre-right on a good day.

Bradley wasn't that good.

He was excellent. His work rate was top class. MOTM for me. Beckerman was good too.

Bradley did really well, especially considering how poor the rest of the midfield was around him. He worked his tail off.

Lineker said "here is the German manager, Jurgen Klinssman". Surely he should say "here is the USA manager, Jurgen Klinssman"?

Yes he was. He was closing down well and made some key passes aside from a few that went astray.

He worked hard, nice to see him getting the ball from deep, too. But the number of passes going astray was high, considering what you should expect from him.

I hate footballers like Gyan. He sets up Ayew and he equalises then simply walks away and shows no emotion at all while all the others are celebrating. This is your country ffs! I hate it when I see it in club matches but when you are playing for your country you expect to see full pride. Shame on you!

People say USA don't deserve, but tbh Ghana didn't deserve it. They missed a few sitters, how is that more deserving?

You can't deny a draw would've been the fairer result here. I don't think any team deserved the 3 points.

Jermaine Jones was MOTM for me. He made a ton of really good challenges and he was fricken everywhere.

USA! USA! USA!

Glad they won. Who was the Chelsea fan who said Atsu was going to show everyone what a star he is at the World Cup? They're looking like a right mug.

Well, you can't really blame us for the approach. I mean, how long did the US have the lead for? Like 94 or 95 minutes or something?

He realised he doesn't get paid for the assist.

Ghana should be winning that game.

they should, but their finishing was dirt poor.

I think Howard was challenged all of twice?

Thought the exact same thing. He literally showed no emotion.

Press here got that wrong then. :thdn:

It would have been more epic if it had happened during halftime.

Nobody except for players and backroom staff in the changing room for pre-game and half-time. That's my rule anyway. :herman:

Perhaps Obama is too busy finding a way to murder more Iraqis.

This picture is so American.

Always a shame when a nation with zero football history or support manage to beat a proper footballing nation. Oh well, atleast ze Germans and Portugal will turn these clowns over.

Oh I dunno, the Iraqis are doing a pretty good job of that already.

That was amazing. The brilliant start, enduring 80+ minutes of Ghanian dominance, the let down when Ayew scored after a really nice play, then everyone in room going crazy after the Brooks goal. What a start for us.

Well since one is a defender and the other a forward, I don't think so. You might be thinking of Julian Green.

Over 6,000,000 tickets were sold to MLS matches this past season. That's actually more tickets than were sold in the Brazilian Serie A.

Were these American tactics of sitting back basically cause of the early goal? Would have been interesting how they played otherwise. I can't imagine American fans being overly happy with that, of course it's all ok when you win

Point off Portugal and they're laughing. Definitely possible but sitting back from the start in that too? That early goal kind of threw everything out

Well, plus Altidore's injury and Ghana's style (plus apparently Dempsey was having trouble breathing). And for all that Ghana only had one more shot on goal than the US. Some of our players certainly have to play better, Bradley in particular, but with the matchup and circumstances I don't think it was all that bad an outing by the team.

That's the right, surely

This is calling out for a Stealers Wheel joke. Or a Reservoir Dogs joke.

Bradley had a terrible game imo. Slowed the pace, didn't make the right runs, misplaced a lot of passes.

Beckermann or Jones for MOTM. The former was great at holding the midfield and unlike Bradley connected a lot of his passes. The latter bossed the midfield, was always available for the pass.

I thought that Beckermann was the MOTM last night personally, a tireless midfielder for the USA in the game, got forward at times as well and good positionally.

how much tickets per capita?

Because that total number probably makes then a "bigger" football country than 99% in the world. Just because you know, they're the largest rich country in the world...

1930 when europe didn't bother going.

You can only play who's in front of you.

Not our fault the English thought so highly of themselves.
