That goal by Shea. That’s quality.
What an incredible team.

Did Brek play out on the right for the entire game?

Your guess is as good as mine. I literally only saw this video. However, in the Mexico game, Freddy started on the right, and Gyau played on the right, so Porter probably does like Shea cutting inside on his left.

Not that I want the full preview for all games but any chance we can get it for the semifinal game if we get there?

Get it? You mean, lose?

Why is the crest on her shirt on the wrong side?

Sheanon Williams appears to be the pick to replace Gatt: http://www.brotherlygame.com/2012/3/20/2887971/source-sheanon-williams-usmnt-u23-joshua-gatt-miss-two-weeks-olympics-roster

wasn’t he injured too?
Posted by dth on 2012/03/20 at 3:56 PM
Who? Gatt? Williams? Neither is currently injured.

Williams it is:

Reading the poll: “Wow, Freddy Adu isn’t even 23? That’s ridiculous! Despite everything, you can still be optimistic about his future.”
Then my eyes wander over to the twitter feed, where the top tweet reads “24 year-old Lionel Messi scores, sets barca record”. Yeah, optimism gone. Fuck you perspective.

Scipio, you will never be as good at tennis as Federer. Give up. :) Seriously, comparing Freddy to Messi? That’s 2004 talk. Let it go.

NOooooooo, my shattered dreams…
And I was only mentioning their ages, don’t get your hipster jeans all wrinkled. Really no other point in comparing the two unless your discussing ill-advised food product endorsements

Leo: KFC http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0L-Z0jAl10

You lost me at “hipster,” that’s when I start drifting out of conversations.
The time may come when mentioning their ages and accomplishments isn’t an issue. By 2018, we might be talking to key World Cup contributors.

the nice thing about the adu/ messi debate is that they have only played each other once in an official game, and freddy won it.

From what I could tell in the video the player on the field during the Shea goal shown were:
Adu (or Gyau)——Agudelo——Shea
Any thoughts on if that was Adu or Gyau out there playing on the left?
I was hoping the front half of the field was.
Anyone else have thoughts?

who the HELL was that at 1:18??? That guy most definitely just went H.A.M. on that defense… He ratcheeeet….
