Well, I just wasted some valuable time watching Houston and Saprissa play to a nil-nil draw. I guess I thought too much of Houston and figured they'd actually play with a sense of urgency. But by the time the club got around to actually playing decent soccer, the finishing was terrible.
Enough of the preseason excuses. Houston should have buried the chances they had, whether this game was in March or April or November or whenever. They dropped the ball on this one, well, technically they grazed the right post on a point-blank header that should have been in the back of the net. Multiple times.
Now Houston faces the unenviable task of needing a win in Costa Rica, or at worst a draw and penalty kicks. Yeah, good luck on that one.
