SWEET goal by Freddy Adu. I was actually happy for the kid. And the pass from Altidore was as good as it gets. I was flipping between the match and my hometown Trailblazers’ 42-point pounding of the Chicago Bulls. Multi-tasking!
Here’s some video… bear with me on this, it’s set to music and a little shaky but gives you what you want to see…from the match. I like Mastroeni in the lineup. He strikes me as a good veteran presence on a young team.
Here’s a recap of the U.S. match from AP and Boston Herald.
I will also admit that I stayed up and watched the first half of the Japan-Qatar qualifier on FSC. Japan is pretty fun to watch. Their fans were louder than the Qatar supporters — there must be an explanation for that — and the match was in Doha, Qatar. Looked like a nice little stadium. Japan ended up winning 3-0.
