  1. why is wicks anywhere near an mls roster still? he is a laughingly terrible … and its not as if there is any hope of him developing into a player .. sad indictment of state of us goalkeepers

  2. Mexico 2 Costa RIca 0 at 70 minutes. Good to see Mexico playing team football again.
    Note, Nery, Dos, Vela, Rafa, and Oswalda not playing?

  3. Notes on Costa Rica for coach Bradley.
    CM #11 is their best player, keep the ball away from him. FB’s #3 & #6 are poor. The entire left side of Costa Rica is weak technically.

    PS: Ochoa is better than Oswaldo.
