The US just drew Russia 2-2 in Krasnodar without our two best players.
Pretty sloppy performance from the US...Danny Williams had one of the stupidest giveaways in the defensive 3rd I've ever seen leading to an easy Russian goal from 15 yards. We squandered a few chances (Altidore inexplicably sucks with the NT) to equalize and then Michael Bradley had an absolute screamer of a goal assisted by Juan Agudelo.
Clarence Goodson (awful player, no idea why he gets called up) gave up an idiotic penalty in the 84th minute when Howard had it covered and Shirokov put away the penalty.
Then in the 93rd minute, youngster Mix Diskerud struck a volley that deflected and went into the Russian goal to steal a draw for us.
Without Timmy Howard between the sticks, this could have been ugly.
Overall, not a bad year for US soccer and the Klinsmann regime results wise. We finished with a 9-2-3 record, with the losses to Jamaica (away) and Brazil (home), wins on the road against Italy and Mexico, and now a draw on the road against Russia...all of them while missing two to three of our best players. Still lots of improvements needed to be made especially at the CB spots but I like youth infusion that JK seems to be going for.
