      Terrible is a bit of a stretch...

      His size is obviously his biggest strength, he is big, powerful, and fast. That said, his shot isn't very good and he doesn't have amazing footwork. However, he is a forward. He is very good at putting the ball in the net and using his size to possess. He isn't world class, but he isn't terrible. Oh, and he's only 19.

      • Altidore wasnt very good today, but he got the goal, so w/e.

        The real stars today imo were Donovan, DeMerit, Howard, and Onweyu.

        Donovan was really sweet. I kinda hate him, but he was all over the place today.

            If he does play RB for Fulham, then I am less worried and think Specter-Demerit-Onyewu-Boca is our best back 4.
            Sorry, I'm a dumbass, Bocanegra played a bit of LB, not RB.

              Terrible? Really? He is great at using his body and he gets the job done. What do you want from a 19 year old hes still young and playing pretty well this tournament.

                Either way, he played outside back. So that makes me feel more comfortable.

                      meh....he was abysmal at holding the ball up today and he cant receive a pass for is life. Now he got the goal, so good for him as I think he is young and very talented. He has a ton of work to do tho. There is a reason why he didnt play at a spanish 2nd division side.

                      As for Onweyu being a beast, meh. He has good games, but he is another guy who is on and off.

                      • This can be Real big for US soccer. I am not speaking about internationally, but inside the States. I hope that it gets reported and I hope people don't dismiss because 'it's just soccer'.

                            It had me watching. I had to ask my friend a couple questions about the game during, but I was throughly entertained.

                              • USA! USA! USA! Was not the pretiest game ever. I thought our ball possession was atrocious in the second half, especially by our strikers. It was clear Spain was a step above us on that, but we put in their goal and they could not get it past Timmy, Bocanegra, Onyaywu, and crew. It was a good win for us though. The red card was bad, I thought it shoulda been a yellow, but whatever, we won.
