    I've never had such a great time out at the bars to watch a game before only for that goal to pretty much make me sick. Still had fun and a draw is realistically better than what I thought was going to happen but this one hurts.

    I saw the belly button goal and had to leave for an interview.

    Very surprised it ended up a draw.

    Us lucky?

    Portugal was handed their first and last goals...

    All we had to do was simply clear and hold at the end. Typical US though... give it away.

    Mental errors.

    We outplayed Portugal for basically the whole game. We had a rare error by Cameron that led to Portugal's first goal and a dumb mental mistake by Bradley and Portugal of course tied it up. Portugal is a top team because they capitalize off those kind of mistakes, we should have won and we deserved to win as well.

    If we handed them goals that's blame on US not on Portugal. We were lucky they didn't get more goals in my opinion. To me they seemed to control most of the game, certainly controlled the end of the game.

    They controlled the first half, but that was about it.

    We had near/should be goals too. Dempsey's PK being one of them.

    Regardless... being up 2-1 with 15(est) seconds left... and not winning is only something an inexperienced squad does. Defense got lazy at the worst possible time.



    But that cross from Ronaldo was beautiful.

    I was cheering so hard for the US on this one. Portugal fans are by far the most annoying soccer fans around.

    Not liking the fact that there are no more 5 pm CDT games.
