    I heard there was a channel that will be dedicated solely to olympic soccer. I sure couldn't find it last night.
    But I believe all the US games will be shown on msnbc.

    I'm on Time Warner. If you happen to know where that channel may exist, I'd be curious..

    Looks like most providers should have the soccer and basketball channels. Go through the guide on Saturday or Sunday to see if you can find the games.

    With all the spending Chelsea have done in past seasons, it is easy to forget they have spent 24 million pounds this off season.

    A sold out crowd went to see Ronaldinho and he hasn't disappointed in taking advantage of a weak team in New Zealand to show off his skeeeels.

    Argentina are tied with Australia in the other match, which is more even matched.

    Argentina 1-0 Aus

    Argentina should have scored 5 goals in this match.

    This shouldn't be a suprise but AUS were playing counterattack the entire time and almost scored an equalizer late in the game.

    just about every emotion imagineable in the US match this morning.

    What can you say - thought Holland was a technically superior side in the first half and would run away with the game.

    2nd half - the dutch sat back. Credit to the US, they took advantage. Adu, while victim to the dribbling I brought up in prior post, had a much better half. Really good ball control, and better vision around him. Fantastic through ball to Kljestan right as Holland had 2 guys marking him, and a great finish.

    Think I woke up half the neighborhood on Altidore's goal.

    Holden's breakaway could've put the game away. Gut wrenching!

    Once going up 2-1, I was surprised at how much ball control the US was able to maintain. What cruelty this game can bring. Match seemingly over, one foul, one set piece, one draw.
    (credit to the dutch for putting the shot directly underneath the jumping the US line)

    Overall, this team can be quite exciting. I very much look forward to some of these young guys integrating to the senior team.

    Yet, still in a bad way, and probably not quite thinking straight

    Orozco and Rogers were pretty ineffective at midfield. Kljestan came alive and looked a lot more confident with one touch passing and making runs.

    McBride once again not with point production, but a lot of heart coming through the middle.

    Thought Wynne had a much better game. Controlled speed and was less inclined to give up sideline runs. Dutch looked very surprised at how quickly he was able to turn a defensive stop and make a run upfield.

    Heartbreaking to give up the tying goal in injury time. We won't have Adu or Bradley for the Nigeria game due to yellow card accumulation. (very stupid challenge by Adu going studs up into the dutch goalkeeper)
    I didn't see the match, but Balboa on the broadcast mentioned Nigeria will be missing 2 players who picked up red cards last night.

    I honestly thought that Ferguson might go after Etoo, he would have nabbed him for a reasonable price and Ferguson can deal with the big egos.
