    I don't know how the goalies are expected to stop anything that doesn't come right near them. Maybe it's years of watching hockey, but that goal looks huge to me. It seems like if a guy breaks in, he's going to score.

    Which reminds me, why did Eddie Johnson keep stopping after he looked like he had everyone beaten? Once or twice it looked like he had a clear path and then he held up.

    Bornstein, Marvell Wynne, and Benny Feilhaber are all old UCLA soccer teammates.

    They mentioned that on the broadcast.

    It looks alot bigger on TV than it does in person. Its harder to control exactly where the balls going when you're running adn have peopel bumping you, you pick an area and go from there. The refelexes of the goalies is amazing. I never understand how a strike can hit the ball so far above the goal. You will regularly see them go 20-30 rows into the stands.

    EJ may have been in an offside position, he slows up to saty onside. The defense will also "pull forwad" to draw him offsides. he cannot paly the ball from an offside position.
    Think if it as a moving blueline. the ball(puck) has to cross the blueline(line of defenders) before the attacking players.
    The one difference is you can be in an offside position and your team can score and it will count as long as you are not involved in the play

    That's the best explaination I've read of an offsides play, I've tried explaining it to people and it's hard without actually seeing it.

    How did Peru get shutout by Venezuela??? WEIRD. BTW, Brazil's u20 team lost 1-0 to Poland today, not a good sign if you're a brazil fan.

    They're missing their captain and recent Liverpool signee, Lucas Leiva.

    BUT a very good sign if you're a fan of of any other team in the world, maybe they won't dominate the next 50 years.
