Congrats to Lichaj.

Dempsey had a wicked shot that Cech barely deflected wide. He needs to play the same position (reserved forward) with the USMNT.

We've got lots of "reserved forwards" in Europe!

Onyewu: What a chump. Would have been better served staying in the Scandanavian Leagues. Clearly he was a pity signing and never had the ability to break into a top-flight league.

Jay!, Onyewu never payed in Scandanavia. also, teams like Milan don't make pity signings. they sign players that they think can help them. Onyewu signed, then almost immediately got hurt and has taken some time to get back into form. there's no guarantee he'd be in their XI if the injury hadn't happened, but your calling him a chump seems pretty specious.

unless there was sarcasm intended on your part in which case forget it.

Nice to see Altidore earning his keep at a high livel. Looked like he played well - in the right positions at the right time. Had one goal ruled off-sides, and made a nice final pass that was nearly converted by his teammate.

I do hope Onyewu gets back to his old form and earns some playing time.

@dimesmakedollars: Belgium, France, it's all Scandanavia to me.

At any rate I'll be shocked to see him feature in Milan's regular side. He just isn't good enough for the pace of play in the big leagues. And the more time he spends away from a starting XI, the less of a chance he'll make a difference once he gets there.

If he was injured a year ago and fit enough to waste space in a couple of games for the USMNT this summer, what's he been doing since at Milan, anyway?

"@dimesmakedollars: Belgium, France, it's all Scandanavia to me."

That statement explains alot of your ignorance.
