  Kids World Cup
I caught most of the U-20 US-Germany game last night. It reminded me of the game the men played in Korea in 2002. The US dominated the match and should have scored...but the German defense was well organized and kept the US from scoring.

Still, for a 0-0 draw, I found the match highly entertaining and now with the US all but through to the next round, I can't wait to see how far they go.

Sigi seems to have landed on his feet. He's got the boys looking like they can go all the way. Take note Mr Hamilton, he's one of the best coaches in the country and you threw him away in favor of Sampson.
 
Comments:
Overall, I'm ecstatic with what the U-20's have been able to do and for the most part have nothing to complain about (except that we can't score ... but that's always been the case until these last two WCQs).

But why is it Freddy is being forced out to the wing and Eddie's playing in the middle of the park. I would think that would be reversed.

And, boy, do we miss Tim Ward at left back. Hunter Freeman is having some real trouble back there.
 
Actually, I've been impressed with Freeman both on the US Kids team and with the Rapids.
