    I don't think anyone would say that the US Soccer/Futbol Team is great. However I would say that they have and continue to work on getting better. Especially since soccer is not even a big sport in America. What do you think? And any thoughts on the Olympics or more importantly FIFA World Cup.

    Well we dispatched Poland 3-0 recently, good signs. We should win the CONCAFAC division easily because Mexico is getting worse by the day. Then its World Cup time

    lol i like that score...i think the US has a match against Argentina in the summer. That should prove what we can do against the top teams.

    The USA has some excellent goalkeepers.

    Shame about the rest of your squad :p

    I'm looking forward to the England-USA friendly next month.

    true. that was a pretty sloppy performance...albeit on a crappy field in the pouring rain. But T&T is missing one of their stars Dwight Yorke, so hopefully it won't be as tough as it should be.

    Donovan is one of the few American outfield players I rate; nice to see an assist from him. I'd expect him to score later on in the game, too.

    3-0 Final score. The US played well enough, T&T never threatened, and for the last 20 minutes it was just a passing drill for the US. They always do that, just dick around with the ball, never truly putting down an opponent. Nonetheless... we're 3 wins in to round 2 of world cup qualification.
