US Soccer Catch-All

Go USA!

US Women vs Costa Rica kicks shortly. Go USA!

Yay

Super happy for Heather O'Reilly to get the first goal after she saw very little time in the World Cup. Great goal by Press as well!

A hat trick for Christen Press!

US Women v Costa Rica pt 2, tonight!

Will we go easier on them tonight after annihilating them previously? Will we try and top that outrageous result?

Friendly vs Peru for the US Men starts momentarily!

I was there, near the US defending goal in the first half. The chip over our keeper's head was a beauty. The second US goal showed great persistence and awareness.
It was great to see Jozy score in person!

Awesome!

It's good to see the team bouncing back after such a catastrophic Gold Cup.

USA - Brazil in twenty minutes! ESPN2.

Thanks for the heads up. Wasn't sure what to do with myself tonight but this fits the bill perfectly.

Edit: Well, that was something...

Well that sucked, except for that final Danny Williams goal.

That was an excellent goal from Williams but the only thing I could really say to it was that at least it isn't a shutout anymore. Brazil just ran roughshod all over us.

USA in not anywhere near as good as Brazil shocker.

That is some top quality trolling from the FMF.

USA-Mexico tonight for Confederations Cup entry!

Huge game! Biggest remaining match this year!

It is a measure of how frightened Klinsmann is that they have pulled Beasley out of mothballs for tonight's game.

That equalizer. I can exhale now.

This game...

Fair play to Mexico - definitely the better team, on the night.

Any chance Pia Sundhage would be willing to coach the USMNT?

No doubt they beat us fair and square.

We were horrible in possession last night. It was pointed out to me that Altidore is a turnover machine, and indeed, once you're looking for it it's pretty egregious.

Women's Olympic Qualifying is next month here in Texas! Unfortunately, the group with our team is playing in Dallas, although they'll come to Houston for the semis and finals. I might have to see if I can make it.

The Women have a friendly v Ireland beforehand, January 23 on FS1. The Men have one v Iceland on January 31 (ESPN2) and one on February 5 v Canada (FS1).

The Men have World Cup qualifying matches starting March 25.

Tonight! The world champs begin Olympic qualifying here in Texas against Costa Rica, a team they've never lost to.

Gane starts at 7:30 Central and is apparently only on NBC Live Extra.

And the US Women roar out to a great start in the group with a 5-0 win against Costa Rica!

No real surprise there - and I know there's a lot of buzz around Alex Morgan scoring the fastest-ever US goal, but I was most impressed by the control Christen Press showed on her goal.

Next game is this Saturday at 3pm Central vs Mexico. Dos a Cero?

That Christen Press goal made my jaw drop. Can't get enough of watching it over and over.

Yeah, that's some "America's ball skills have arrived" stuff right there.

Spoiler:

Ok, they haven't arrived for everybody, but that was sick.
