Anyone else watching the game right now? Albeit German is without some of their main players from clubs like Bayern Munich and Dortmund, but for the the U.S. Squad to go up 2-0 against Germany is impressive regardless. Especially since Miroslav Klose, arguably the premier German striker, is being held in check very effectively.

Loved seeing Jozy Altidore get his first goal in two years time too. Very entertaining match so far.

Still 2-0 at the half, some thoughts on the game so far:

- I'm loving how solid the U.S. backfield is looking. They have held it together fairly well, and even though there have been chances for Germany to score, a couple of which were second chance opportunities, the U.S. defense has held it together when its needed to, and held Germany scoreless.

Notably was a perfect offsides baiting by the U.S. backfield on a goal by Klose. To see the back line hold uniform like that even under pressure and cause the offsides was definitely promising.

- After scoring the goal, Jozy Altidore looks like a completely different player. He has kicks it into overdrive, and is looking like the old extremely confident Altidore that isn't afraid to let one loose and go for the score in almost any situation.

Even though it was off, a memorable moment in the game was a shot by Altidore from damn near midfield. The German goalkeeper was sleeping, and had it been on target, would've surely scored, and been a Pele like goal.

- The U.S. midfield has definitely been the difference in this game though. They have been controlling the pace of the game for the most part, and without Landon Donovan that is impressive. Clint Dempsey is definitely showing himself to be the great player he rightfully deserves to be called.

- The game really should be 1-0, if not for the embarassing own goal by Germany. Still, great game so far.

Oh FFS

two quick goals by Germany

4-3 now, and they almost scored again. If this turns into a repeat of their previous game against Belgium, it'll be entirely deflating and not going to be a good sign for their World Cup Qualifier against Jamaica on Friday -_-

This win is so crucial

No I watch soccer, I love soccer, I play soccer myself. I watch soccer games because that's where I get my cool moves. Except I got work now so I rarely have time for TV. :/

You watch soccer. Some people tell me it's a boring sport. I said well one day to make it fun I might light the ball on fire and kick it at the goal. haha I can just see this happening, quick win for our team.

Yeah, I have web access on my phone, and was at home watching it sooo. Might go out to the bar to watch the qualifier on Friday, but finding a bar that will actually be playing the game seems rather difficult :/
