United States, Chile play to 1-1 tie in friendly

By Steve Goff

United States 1, Chile 1
Attendance: 18,580
Scoring: Esteban Paredes (Felipe Seymour) 53rd minute; Teal Bunbury (penalty) 75th.

USA LINEUP
GK: Rimando (Johnson 46th); Ds Franklin, Ream, Gonzalez (Wynne 46th), Loyd (Wallace 73rd); Larentowicz, McCarty (captain), Bedoya (Alexander 83rd), Diskerud, Shea (Agudelo 60th); Wondolowski (Bunbury 60th).

Coach Bob Bradley, on the Agudelo-Bunbury partnership: "They both seem to find good spots in terms of holding on to balls but also coming underneath, and as you work with these young guys in camp you see the potential. There still are little things that need a lot of work. A lot has to happen quickly for both of them. Hopefully we can keep moving them in the right direction."

The Chilean TV highlights:

Watch (and listen to) the Telefutura clip for the great audio on Bunbury's goal:

unimpressive, unispired football. lots of hustle but not much more than that.

larentowicz and wynne were horrible.

lots of poor touches. no ability to build up an attack.

we have alot of work to do.

The more I think about it, the more Bunbudelo excites me, mostly because those guys have a ton of chemistry already, from what I've seen in the minutes they've played together in two games. It helps they clearly have a lot of talent, too, of course.

Didnt see the game. But its a friendly nonetheless. Young stars getting their time.

Cant wait for the gold cup and qualifiers.

That's a lot of celebration for a PK.

I did enjoy the announcer's Fergie imitation though.

Jermaine Jones shaky start for Rovers but settling in nicely.

I thought the first 15 minutes were played at incredible pace, and that the USA looked fit, fast, and ambitious. Dax' 30 yarder in the early going was trouble for the keeper - and something I look forward to out of him for United.

I think Mixx, Agudelo, and Bunbury need to be on the field at the same time, always. And no more single striker up top.

Agreed. Let's develop an attacking tandem/trio with some real chemistry... Jozy/Davies may never be what it once might have been

Hilarious.

This partnership takes a lot of pressure off Jozy.

Although I don't think Wondo killed his chances entirely. If he continues to score in MLS, would be interesting to see him partner with someone else.

WNT2 - Canada 1. Goals by Lauren Cheney and Lindsay Tarpley.

Marvel Wynne has got to be the most god awful player to sport a US National Team jersey in over a decade. Why? Why oh why is he still getting call-ups?!

I'd agree that the goal celebration was borderline embarrassing, but such is life for kids who know no better I guess. Maybe Juan can teach Henry some dance moves in exchange for some handball lessons...;) Just glad no one got hurt (unless Bedoya is hurt, but then again I'm still far from impressed by him).

So, when's the Gold Cup Groups and Schedule going to be announced?

Need to start making plans . . .

According to Gold Cup site, the draw will be in 'early Feb.' CONCACAF website calander doesn't mention a date for the draw soooo who knows.

The answer is Bob Bradley ... who you'll recall thought so highly of Robbie Findley and Ricardo Clark after poor showing in the WC v. England, yet inexplicable put them back into the WC match v. Ghana that cost us the chance to advance.

@ univ&park - thanks for the pointers (even though once would have been enough!). Now I'm starting to get excited about the upcoming DCU season.
