Lest we not forget, the US played Brazil on Sunday, something that doesn't happen that often.
It was 4-2 in favor of the selecao, but the U.S. did well for themselves. Between getting to the Chivas game and watching the other football, I didn't take in the game from start to finish so I can't really offer up detailed analysis. However, I will say that Oguchi Onyewu is quickly becoming a liability in the back. His own goal was bad enough. Call it bad luck or being a bad position, whatever, that goal's on him. The build-up was fantastic but Tim Howard made the save and the play should have ended there.
And I actually thought Robinho's dive was a foul and should have been a PK (much like Josh Wolff's non-call should have been a PK) and that would have been another major strike against Onyewu. Jimmy Conrad needs to start alongside Carlos Bocanegra. Onyewu's physical presence alone is not enough to keep trotting him out there as the number one choice in the back. I mean, there's a reason why he couldn't stick around in the EPL.
Anyway, check out SI.com's Jonah Freedman for some post-game analysis. Jonah is now officially in the we-love-Clint-Dempsey camp, which seemingly grows bigger by the day.
