Looks like another bad red card call towards Beasley there...Do these referees know the rules?

Good defense, and having 8 of your 11 in the box to block shots.

Yes, they dislike the U.S. and always have made bad calls against us.

Yeah that red card was a horrible call IMO, even though I am biased towards the US, it was still not at all a red... I would even argue if it was a yellow, I thought it was a clean hard challenge.

I absolutely hated the red card call in the earlier game against I think Italy and I hated this one. I would hate to think referees are biased against the U.S., but horrible calls either way. Luckily it did not effect the outcome of the match.

Yeah but it will effect the outcome of the next game; we will be missing a starter in the Finals against either Brazil or the Host country South Africa

Felhaulber is just as good if not better than Bradley, he created the second goal and reminds me of a young Donovan.

The announcer said Fellhalbuar should be starting because he's good at controlling the ball and is calm with defenders around him (as shown when he knifed up there defense today).

Yeah the game today seemed lopsided even though we won... the US did not do a very good job of controlling the ball, the just capitalized on their scroing opportunities.

Agreed. I think we all know we still will have our hands full with either Brazil or South Africa, being in their home country. I know there are people who say Spain didn't play their best game, but that's no excuse. Even if that's true, you cannot use that as the sole excuse for why they lost. Tim Howard made some great saves in goal after giving up a few goals against Italy that I thought were stoppable. Nice game, we'll see what happens Sunday.

I honestly can't see them winning on Sunday. They will be too mentally worn down, more than physically.

Add that to the fact that they're not better than Brazil...And we all know how big home games are in soccer even though South Africa is not exactly a powerhouse...

Yeah, but they certainly weren't thought to be better than Spain...
Who knows maybe they will win

Maybe, but nobody in the US will even know it happened.

Yes, they beat Spain. However, USA generally speaking cannot compete with the best. Look at Landon Donovan; he is supposed to be one of the U.S. top players, but he is too small and gets bodied by the bigger guys he goes against. Tim Howard keeps this team alive, he is one of the best goalies in the world. They didn't play good defense necessarily, but rather just packed everyone in the box. Yes, overall they played solid against Spain, but look at their goals. Jozy Altidore's goal probably could have been saved by many goalies, although he did a phenominal job shielding the defender. Ramos on Spain, who in my opinion was the best player on the field, literally stopped the ball for Clint Dempsey, who easily but it away. If we are talking World Cup, USA cannot compete with the size and strength of the powerhouses in the World, like Brasil, Europe, Argentina, etc. Whatever, we can be fans for now and enjoy the USA upset, because wins like these will not come around often!

Size means nothing in soccer...Howard is about the 10th best goalie in the world...Altidore is team USA's future...The Spanish goalie is the best in the world, Altidore made him think he was going right and he went left...Ramos is a pussy enough said...If the US gets in a easy group next year I can see them getting to the semis again. They have plenty of talent and great chemistry, there problem is consistancy, they are by far the best conditioned team in the world, but they don't play consistantly enough. If you think the US isn't as big and strong as Brazil, Argentina and the Euro countries you're on crack, they're all much smaller and less conditioned...

You obviously don't play soccer. I am a highly competitve player and I can tell that you that size and strength may not be the primary factor, but it certainly is essential for a great team. Jozy Altidore is so overrated; he had 2 solid plays yesterday, and everyone other time he got the ball he did nothing with it. Now YOU are on crack if you think the Spanish goalie is better than Tim Howard. John Madden once said that if the ball touches your hands, then you should catch it. The goalie got a whole PALM on the ball, and should've knocked that away from the goal. Conditioned? Yea, I don't know about that. How about the fact that only a handful of the US players play competively in Europe? Contioned? How about the fact that they had minimal offensive opportunities in the 2nd half? RAMOS IS A PUSSY? YEA HOW ABOUT HE PLAYS FOR REAL MADRID. NOT TO MENTION HE'S A DEFENDER AND HE WAS PART OF SPAIN'S ENTIRE ATTACK. Shots 29-9? Yea, I am a U.S. fan, but I'm just trying to face the facts. The are not a real contender.
