Dos a Zero

The USA beat Mexico 2-0 again last night. A couple remarks:

a) Even better than the win was finally seeing Landon Donovan play well. He took people on 1v1 and frequently beat them, and he took his goal well too.

b) It was disappointing that Chris Rolfe started ahead of Taylor Twellman, as I think when Donovan plays well, he would be a perfect strike partner for Twellman. With Landon and Chris Rolfe up top the US had no physical presence, which is why we played poorly for the first half and were lucky that Jimmy Conrad scored off a corner kick against the run of play.

c) Chris Albright is not good enough to play at this level.
