Another dreadful US performance in a 2-1 win at Antigua & Barbuda leaving it very, very late to win it. Both goals from Eddie Johnson of all people, his first appearance for the US in years due to his general suckiness. Didn't see the game but from following the live blogs it was a poor performance. Qualification to hexagonal all but certain. That said this is not a good US team at this moment and time and qualification to the World Cup could actually be in a little doubt. Can't envision a lower finish then 4th in the hexagonal which would be the playoff spot against Oceania winner.
Eddie Johnson doesn't suck and he was brilliant today. He had a rough time overseas but he's always dominated in CONCACAF and is having a great year in the MLS. Alan Gordon had a textbook early cross to set the table for the late winner. I didn't like his inclusion, but clearly JK made the right call this time.
The game was played on a cricket pitch and that might have been the smallest and narrowest field I've ever seen. The conditions were awful, windy and rainy and we still had a few shots that hit the post and a late amazing save from the A&B goalkeeper. Donovan and Johnson should be available against Guatemala which should help a lot.
Who gives a shit if it was a poor performance? A win is a win and we got the necessary result today.
