Penalty on USA:
It's just me or did anyone notice that the Ghanaian defender gets
first to the ball?
At first sight I thought it was a penalty correctly called.
On the replay, from a different angle, it seems no-penalty to me. I
would like to see the replay again. Any pointer?
As for the two Ghana goals, they were out of pure power. Dunno how to

It won't matter.
Bradley's a goner, and the institutional problems which will keep the
US a fifth-tier world side will continue, because the sporting culture
will not allow the USA to be competitive against countries for whom
soccer is literally life and death.

I read that he set up some sort of inofficial World Record by running
more than 16 kilometres (10 miles) in a single match.

A couple of new guys who did relatively well: Bornstein and Edu. They
won't be stars but they will be solid players we need. Bradley has
seriously benefitted from playing day in day out in a 2nd-tier side in
Germany. Altidore needs to get out of England if he is to improve at
all. My prediction is that in 4 years we will have a diffferent line-up
