    Re: US Gold Cup Roster: Yes that does say Freddy Adu

    I thought they played really well. Aside from the "obligatory 10 minute mark leave a man wide open in the box" I though the defense was particularly excellent.

    What I didn't realize was how much my disappointment going into a game translates into said player being the best player in the match.
    Going into the tournament, I was really starting to talk myself into Jozy Altidore hitting the bench for a few games, boom 2 goals in the first round.

    Going into today, I said to myself, "You know Jermaine Jones has had a lot of hype, but he really hasn't played particularly well." Boom, goal, and a huge performance all over the field. Plus he dove like a pro.

    So I guess the question is who am I most disappointed now, Bradley? Landycakes? Bocanegra or Goodson?
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    When I saw the replay of his Louganis, I said to myself "we will win the World Cup within my lifetime. Our guys finally get it."

    Landon Donovan comes off the bench and threads a pass to Dempsey to rescue the US ... 1-0 and on to the final and most likely a matchup with Mexico.

    Freddy Adu deserves a ton of credit for his vision and execution on the pass to Donovan.

    Not a great game overall but I'll take it. Bring on Mexico!

    Good to see Freddy have an impact on the game. Hopefully it's a sign of great things to come.

    Also read that Altidore will not be able to play in the final.

    Yeah he's out 6 weeks.

    Will be intereting to see if Bradley starts Adu and Agudelo up top against Mexico.

    Bradley w/a nice header off of Adu's cross. 1-0 US in the 9th minute.

    Cherundolo injured and out in the 12th minute ... Bornstein in for the US.

    Despite the score, Mexico controlling the pace early and it seems like it's only a matter of time before they score.

    Re: US Gold Cup Roster: Yes that does say Freddy Adu

    Donovan! 2-0 US in the 24th minute.

    Adu sends it to Dempsey who threads it to Donovan.

    Brilliant adjustment by Coach Bradley (shocking!) switching Donovan and Dempsey's positions on the field (moving Dempsey up front and Donovan back in the midfield) ... pays off almost immediately.

    Adu has been a factor throughout this game.

    Adu just misses after some brilliant footwork.

    Barrera scores for Mexico to make it 2-1 US in the 29th minute.

    Great game that is shaping up to be a classic.

    Mexico ties it 2-2 in the 37th minute. Backline confusion for the US.

    Typical Mexico cheap shot ... Adu gets kicked in the face. Typical official response ... they look the other way.
