    Looked better than I thought we would. Of course, I should have considered our home record vs. Costa Rica, now 13-0-3 all time.

    USA 1 Paraguay 0

    What a grinder! That was a gutsy win. Brooks was a wall on defense. Great effort all around.

    That ref....well, let me be kind and put it this way: HE SUCKS!

    US wins group!

    Costa Rica 3 Columbia 2

    Wow! idiot coach of Columbia started 10 different players, rather than his regular starting line up and as a result, the US probably avoids Brazil in the quarterfinals. Thanks, dude!

    I say "probably" because given what just happened, I won't assume Brazil will beat Peru later today and win their group. But, it's expected. The US should get Peru in the quarters, and be on the opposite side of the bracket of Brazil. Can't see those guys until the championship game.

    Brasil is out! Wow! Peru wins group....on a horrible non-call, and Ecuador finishes 2nd. The US gets Ecuador in the quarterfinals. And Brasil gets to get on a plane and go home.

    Haven't seen the official bracket, but I suspect we're on the same side as Argentina. That leaves Columbia on the other side, and if so, they have to be the prohibitive favorite to reach the final from that side.

    Regardless, we should beat Ecuador and advance to the semis. No excuse for not doing so.

    Same side as Argentina, so provided the quarter versus Ecuador goes as expected...we will meet Messi in the semis.

    Seattle should be a huge advantage for us in the quarterfinals.

    USA 2 Ecuador 1

    Whew!

    Not a good final 20 mins. Got lucky they didn't get the equalizer, or worse!

    Happy to be moving on, and likely will see Argentina in the semis. But, we have got to play a full, strong 90 mins. Lapses like that vs. Messi will get us bitch-slapped by 3 or 4 goals.

    Jones out will hurt, Bedoya out will hurt.

    Woods out will hurt the most. He has been brilliant over the top to stretch the field. I hope Pulisic is ready.

    Have never liked that stupid cumulative card suspension crapola.

    Someone has got to step up to fill Woods' shoes. He has been so active up top it has allowed Dempsey to loaf around and then do what he does best: be in the right spot at the right time.

    Re: Back to the important stuff....

    Final Four:

    USA (31) vs. Argentina (1)
    Columbia (3) vs. Chili (5)

    The FIFA rankings are baffling. We entered this tourney ranked 29th in the world. Since then we lost to #3 Columbia and have beaten #23 Costa Rica, #44 Paraguay, and #11 Ecuador....yet we have dropped two places.

    Hmmmm....regardless we are in high company in this FF gathering.
