U..S. goal in the 7th minute when Rogers dribbles through two defenders and feeds Adu open on the right, and Adu sends it in. 1-0 U.S.
Rogers, of the Columbus Crew of MLS, is off to a good start to his game.
30 — Beckerman to Davies, shot, save. U.S. has more chances and is in control. Good to see some MLS guys out there.
31– Holden scores for U.S. from Rogers. 2-0 U.S. Fine cross to Holden for the goal.
45 — Holden finds Davies in traffic in the middle in front of the goal but the keeper, Desmond Noel, is right there to catch the deflection.
HALF 2-0 USA HAPPY 4TH OF JULY a todos!
Rogers down and shaken up to start second half, so he is jogging it off.
57 — Adu with a shot over the goal. Decent crowd here, probably 18,000 or so.
59 — Adu and Davies with a run, shot deflected away. This game could become a blowout soon.
60 — Rogers streaks forward with the ball and has a two-on-one with the GK, he takes it himself and beats Noel, 3-0 U.S. Rogers is the Man of the Match right now with two goals and and an assist. Pause with the pass ahead.
62 — Seattle crowd roars as Brad Evans comes in for Cherundolo. Nice moment for Evans, but then he is sent back. Now the ref lets him in. ??? Crowd boos. Evans must have been to anxious to come in.
68 — Davies from Pearce for a goal, Davies does a little dance in the corner. 4-0 U.S.
72 — U.S. smells blood, Adu shot hits the side post. Davy Arnaud in for U.S.
80th — Adu really wants that second goal. He just used his hands to knock down a pass before scoring. Goal waved off and a yellow for the kid.
I was wrong. 15,387 is the announced attendance.
Three minutes extra time….
Rogers is the Man of the Match. Game over. 4-0 USA.
