USA, Looking Ahead
We watched the Americans win all three first-round matches. We saw them score seven goals -- by six different players -- and allow none. We saw Bob Bradley use a variety of lineups and combinations in order to manage minutes and keep his players fresh for the elimination rounds. Next up: quarterfinal Saturday afternoon at Foxborough against Guadeloupe, Panama, Honduras or, gasp, Mexico.
The big question is: Based on what you saw the past week, who should be in Bradley's starting lineup? Keep in mind that the yet-to-be-determined opponent could dictate some decisions. How about Howard, Spector, Onyewu, Bocanegra, Simek, Mastroeni, Feilhaber, Beasley, Dempsey, Donovan and Ching?
While you are thinking about it, enjoy Beasley's two goals last night:
