By far the best game of the tournament so far for the U.S...with that said, Jamaica looked like they couldn't care less after the first 5 minutes or so. Pretty pathetic display on their end. Assuming Altidore is injured, Agudelo will start and they'll roll a 4-5-1 with Kljestan in the middle and Donovan back on the wing. I certainly don't want to be overconfident but I've got a feeling that this team is going to be fired up over their loss last week and really steamroll Panama

I can't believe the jamaican just ran off without contesting or arguing. Bad stuff.
see the 3:29 mark

One of the worst dives I have ever seen. Ever. EVER.
I would expect this **** in the Mexican league..but this was disgusting. Have more respect for the ****ing game..
Or at LEAST try to make it look like you actually got touched you pussy.

Like it or not diving is apart of the game. Until FIFA starts really cracking down on diving nothing is going to change. I don't like it but I can't say I was upset that Jamacia went down to 10 men and Jones was easily our best player yesterday.

agreed on Jones as a player. But I don't care if it's a part of the game, doesn't mean I have to accept it. I don't want to be up a man if it's through a dive. He (and we) should be better than that..

You definitely don't have to accept it, I'm just saying that at this point I don't even really care anymore. If no one is going to play by the "rules" I'm not gonna be upset if the US gains an advantage through unsavory means.

Wow, first a great ball by Adu to Donavon to spring the counter attack then a great cross by Donovan for the Dempsey goal.
Great counter-attacking goal there.

Not the prettiest win but they got the job done. Adu looked pretty sharp, he could definitely be a good spark off the bench against meh-he-co

Freddy showed today the type of brillance he can bring to a game....and at the same time he'll make a bonehead giveaway in the defensive zone. But coming into a game late to be a spark? Right up his alley. Add in he's REALLY good on set pieces, and he could change a game.
