Did you see what I just saw? Jozy Altidore of Boca Raton with a second-half hat trick to lead US to a 4-3 comeback win over No. 13 Bosnia...on European soil..without Landon Donovan or Clint Dempsey. THAT is impressive. Michael Bradley was huge, too. Eddie Johnson scored the other goal, on assist from Jozy. US has now won 12 matches in a row, longest streak in the world at the moment. This team looks like it's for real, ladies and gentlemen. Could be exciting Summer 2014!
What do you think? Is this the team that can make a deep run? Post your views.
Update: US losing to Bosnia 2-0 at halftime in Sarajevo. 11-match win streak in danger. Bosnia has dominated, goals by Dzeko and Ibisevic, who starred at Saint Louis University, holds a US green card, and whose parents still live in St. Louis. Bet Klinsmann wishes Ibisevic was wearing a US jersey right now...
You watching the match? What do you think? They miss Landon Donovan, eh?
Earlier: US plays Bosnia today at 2:30 p.m. in Sarajevo. ESPN2
Here's the US starting lineup: Howard, Evans, Cameron, Brooks, F.Johnson, Bradley, Jones, Bedoya (a native of Weston!), Diskerud, E.Johnson, Altidore.
You like that lineup? I think it will be fun to see Eddie Johnson and Jozy Altidore together up top, and Bedoya and Diskerud impressed in Gold Cup. Bradley always a rock in middle. His dad, Bob, by the way, coaching Egyptian national team in a friendly today in Egypt despite unrest there. Share your thoughts.
