Well that absolutely sucked last night- I really didn't think the US would win(we never have in Costa Rico) but I, at least, thought it would be competitive- wrong. The defense was atrocious zero tackling, especially early and we give up a goal in just 79 seconds- unbelievable.

Then another one at the 13 minute mark to basically win the game before 15 minutes has gone by. Totally blows. Now we're in 2nd place in the group and have to beat Honduras here at home because up next in qualifying is a game in Mexico(another place where we've never won). The US is somehow going to have to learn how to win games like this in tough environments if they ever what to take the next step up from a mid-level team.

After the match with Honduras the US is playing in the Confederations Cup in South Africa and our first 2 matches are against Italy and Brazil- so we better get our shit together or those games could get very ugly.
