More from the game

Some match reports from several different outlets on Sunday's 8-0 US win over Barbados:

- Grahame Jones of the LA Times talked to Barbados goalkeeper Alvin Rouse after the match. I think he was the only one who stopped Rouse, who had one great save off an Oguchi Onyewu header but otherwise was helpless to stop the U.S. attack.

- Ivan Orozco of the San Diego Union-Tribune talked to Brian Ching about his first goal, which deflected off a Pablo Mastroeni shot.

- Jeff Carlisle of ESPN has his story followed with player ratings. Two guys got a six, the rest were sevens and eights.

- My story for The Press-Enterprise. Michael Bradley said it was "surreal" the amount of time they had on the ball on Sunday, which probably seemed like hours compared to their opponents in the run-up to the game.
