USA vs. Jamaica Gold Cup quarterfinals

Here goes my first post about soccer and it comes at the heals of USMNT's win vs Jamaica in the Gold Cup. With the win USA advances to the Semis. on Wednesday in Houston, the United States will face the winner of Panama-El Salvador.

Having watched the past three games in the group play, I must say today win was a great result. The way they played vs. Jamaica is what the fans of USMNT was hoping to see since the start of Gold Cup. Especially not starting Donovan and not having Jozy the entire game. They played with discipline, with a complete and creative performance. A momentum builder without a doubt. Their finishing could have been better.

Talks about Bob Bradley's status can subside for another couple days. For all the flack Bradley has taken, some of it deserved, he made plenty of good moves today, both with the lineup and in-game moves. Jones, Bedoya, Kljestan, Agudelo all with standout performances today.

I have to give where credit is due, and that belongs to Donovan Ricketts, he single handedly kept his team alive.
