USA vs. Mexico: Fight! The TYAC Preview

Blackmon Rivalries are often cyclical, but… My how a Graham Zusi header in Panama can change everything.  Since Graham Zusi’s late header found the back of the old onion bag and Panama and delivered El Tri from the “we aren’t going to Brazil” fire and wilderness and into a World […]

US 1, Switzerland 1: Yanks Were Better Against Swiss, Until They Weren’t

USA 2, Panama 0: What We Learned in Feel Good Win

Tweet John Halloran Who ever thought a win over a CONCACAF opponent in a January camp friendly could be so important?  Heading into Sunday afternoon’s game against Panama, the United States men’s national team was a pitiful 1-5-3 in its last nine matches and had developed a recent, and unsavory, habit of second-half collapses.  After […]
