T&T is trash and I don't expect them to hack Pulisic like most Concacaf teams do/will so we'll probably get away with it. Early goal would be huge.

Meh first half

Defensive lapses, some good play up top but can't break through. Same old same old

I just checked the AFC standings. They have 2 groups of 6 this time instead of 4. CONCACAF 4 plays the winner of the AFC playoff.

1) Iran
2) South Korea
3) Uzbekistan

1) Japan
2) Saudi Arabia
3) Australia

It will be disappointing if we don't win considering they don't have much to play for (besides pride) and will be looking ahead to the confederations cup next week.

I'm not saying I expect a win, I'm just saying it will be disappointing not to win. I expect the disappointment. if there was ever a good chance to win there, this is it. they play Portugal in st petersberg in 1 week. this is just a warmup game for them. They will probably be executing a Portugal gameplan today.

Looks like a concession and looking forward to the next game? See an awful lot of pissed people on twitter who wanted to see us go for this win. Maybe the guys will surprise us. In Pulisic we trust?

There isn't another game for a month. I expected mexico to rest some guys for the busy time ahead but we are off. Maybe the strategy is to have forwards go all out for a half in the altitude and wear mexico down then bring on dempsy altidore nagby and win it.

But seriously. How are Fabian Johnson (who I like but played pretty poorly the other night) and a 57 year old Beasley the best America has to offer at left back? Why did we start the B team?

Damn! Wood cost us that game. Had he not struck out we would have been up 2-0. Oh well, we're sitting pretty good now if we win the rest of our home games.

Happy with a tie, especially since they seemed to dominate time of possession. This puts us in a good position going forward.

Why do we generate so many choke artists? Our players are good and get in great position then fan on easy shots in the big moment. (wood and gonzalez this game). That makes every game a tossup. We are on pace to be headed for the playoff.

Just like Mexico and most other teams. You can always point to a close should have been goal in a lot of games in any league.

We played a 5-4-1 last night and packed the back to play for the draw after the Bradley goal. Altidore played for what, 15 minutes? What did you expect him to do?

The Bradley goal was easily the coolest sporting experience of my life in person.

Bummed we didn't take a few chances and it sure felt like we had a ton of calls go against us. Hated our defensive posture second half, I was just waiting for a bullshit Chicharito dive to get a pen or something.

I know you haven't had a chance to watch the game back but we did have a ton of calls go against us. Quite a few of those free kick fouls were very soft and there were plenty of card-able challenges flying in from them that went without even a whistle.

Chicharito should have gotten a card for simulation at one point for a blatant dive in the box during the 2nd half too.

One guy for Mexico should have been off in the 3rd minute. He had a terrible challenge on the sideline then threw a monster elbow on Wood right after that.

The ref felt like he lost a little control swallowing his whistle early.

^yes, it started way early.

I agree too (with earlier posters) that in the 2nd half the defense just stacked in front of the goal, and that was a little disappointing, but otherwise I think our back line looked more organized, had better one-on-one tackles, and facilitated counter attacks better than it has in a LOOOONGGGG time. The Mexico attack and counter attack is not top tier, but it's also no joke. They still had too many chances but keeping Mexico to one goal in azteca is a solid showing. There are still some adjustments to be made (replace Beasley), but I'm impressed with Cameron and Gonzalez. I think they can build off this ugly.

Just watched the first half. Pretty disappointing they got away with those elbows, especially the one on Wood. Probably the best first 20 min we could ask for. We should have been 2-0 up and they were completely contained without any chances. Then Dos Santos went close from distance, Chicharito got behind the defense, and then the goal all happened within 5 min of each other. That being said, we did pretty good to regroup defensively and I can't believe Omar didn't put away that free header.

More or less how I remember it while watching in the stadium except I didn't get a good look at the elbows. I knew that Chicharito dive was a dive and I was on the other end. He's such a fuck.

^ Corona was even worse. Entire central mid was awful.
