    Kicking off in South Korea tomorrow, the US will play their first group match on Monday v Ecuador. Looking forward to seeing Fulham's Luca De La Torre, Spurs' Cameron Carter-Vickers, and the rest of the team do some damage.

    De La Torre saves the US a valuable point in extra time in a 3-3 draw. From the highlights, Ecuador exploited the US right side on both their opening goals, the biggest positive is the squad showed plenty of fight back.

    Hmm. Right back, that's normally Fossey's domain...

    Also doesn't help that a certain Tottenham center back was not in the lineup.

    That kid Sargent can flat out score. Hopefully that talent continues to grow.

    Watched the match via the magic of DVR. Jones [who came on as an injury sub], Lennon, Sargent, and de la Torre were all impressive. We were lucky to get a point -- primarily because Ecuador's striker was good under pressure. Had he not scored, Klinsmann would have certainly been red-carded for a foul on the other Ecuador striker in the penalty area about 3 seconds earlier. And then, of course, when we looked the more likely to break the tie and get the three points, Klinsmann lost control of the ball at his feet and we were 3-2 down. The young Fulham lad pulled it out for us.
