- How many guys did we have in the box on those second and third goals? That's the attacking intent we're so often missing
- I wondered in the Italy reaction about our lack of goals from the run of play. Here we got three of them. The first may have been a scramble and the third a none-too-subtle cross and headed finish, but the second was the best run-of-play goal I've seen from the US in a while. Nothing technically spectacular, but a good team goal. Ball is won, Bradley leads the break. Numbers up confuse defenders while runs stretch them wide, Donovan left alone, Bradley finds him. Bradley keeps running, Donovan plays him in, Bradley with a trademark sliding finish from his Heerenveen days. Lovely stuff.
