There is no antibiotic for World Cup fever.
And yesterday’s piece on the starting 11 for the decade had us recanting the Cup games of the past 10 years….with conversations around Sanneh and the Germany game in 2002 on the forefront of our mind.
While TSG will be decidedly focused on the three first-things-first matches for the USMNT in most of its coverage, does Germany again await the USMNT should they graduate the group?
For our younger readers, you missed a good one in 2002….a stellar performance by world class keepers in Kahn and Friedel, a vintage Donovan performance before he was vintage and, of course, a handball by rocket-footed defensive mid Torsten Frings that makes Theirry Henry look like a saint.
And yes…per out piece yesterday as well…that is a dynamite lead pass to Donovan for scoring attempt…from Reyna…wow!
…and what a run by Tony Sanneh!
