My fear going into this game was that it would be 0-0 at the half. USA looks good so far. Need Brooks and Wood to stay in this without Wood getting a yellow.

Jones' red was stupid on both him and the ref IMO. Woods is out, Bedoya is out, Jones is out. This line up will look really different against Argentina (supposedly). Will probably at least get to see Nagbe and maybe even Pulisic as subs at least.

Yeah, that leaves Beckerman, Zusi, Nagbe & Pulisic. Not bad back ups but if you're presumably going up against Argentina then you want your best. Well, they better play the game of their lives to have a chance. Hopefully they'll represent respectably.

Wow, what a game!  We looked like a different team, put pressure on Ecuador anytime they had the ball and pretty much shut them down for the 1st hour. I wish Klinnsmann would have pulled Bedoya a little earlier could have prevented them from getting one back and he would be available for Tuesdays game. All in all I was impressed with the tempo we created in the first half, we took it to them early. I think Ecuador underestimated the American will to fight to the end, lets hope the next guys do the same.

Not excited that the Mexico match doesn't start until after 10! Gotta record it and watch it tomorrow. Heck, going out tonight so gotta record the Argentine match too. I still can't figure out why Copa has their matches starting so late in the evening/night. Euro starts theirs in the daytime their time. Copa needs to seriously rethink this strategy.

We have more of a heat factor in the daytime here in the US than they do in France, if I were playing a game today I would prefer it be at night.

That can't be the only reason. Right?

They are also playing 3 games a day, we only did 2. They are starting at 9 which is about 3-4 their time. USA is also much bigger. 3 hours difference from east to west and they are trying to start at a time everyone can watch. European countries don't have the timezone problem to consider. The times always depend on the host country, not other European countries.

 

Edit: The 3rd game is at 3 which is about 9 in France. So that isn't far off from our 2nd games of this Tournament.

2-0 at 44'. This ref is terrible. He'll let a mugging go but calls fouls on obvious dives.

3-0 at 49'. Ok, I've seen enough. Wow. Mexico just didn't show up and Chili, Alexis, are playing an excellent A game.
