Bradley was dead on his feet at the end of the half there. Look at his reaction to the ball from Beckerman that was just a little away from him.

Also, additional stoppage time was because of the sub on of Omar Gonzalez.

God fucking dammit. Bradley with a shit shit shit turnover. In the randomly added extra minute. Cameron loses his mark and doesn't maintain inside position.

The deal is we go out and play catch with Germany for 90 minutes and we both go through

Relative to his importance Bradley has been the biggest disappointment by far. Four points is great, but what the fuck.

Bradley is a shadow of his former self. Less than a shadow. A wisp. Let the calls for Diskerud begin.

Out if we lose and Ghana wins.
We could still go through with a one-goal loss and a one-goal win by Ghana, depending on the number of goals scored in both games. This is where having a 2 - 2 draw (matching the score of Ghana-Germany) helps us, because we're not starting out in a hole in goals scored.

We'd be better off with Portugal beating Ghana, since they have a big GD deficit to make up.

It was a terrible giveaway. He didn't control well, then he fumbled about, then he didn't make a tackle when Portugal took it.

Yedlin has the ball inthe corner and he decides to play it inside. That is fuckin unforgiveable. He stays in the corner, portugal have to foul him, or win the ball from him, or the ball goes out for a throw. If he has a team mate to sheild him you run a min off the clock or more. Standard play.

I don't know a damned thing about soccer but the US defense looked so exhausted for the last 15 minutes, letting Portugal control the ball and running around in bunches on defense, I think they were lucky to give one up so late.

He didn't control it well at all, but its not like he made a stupid play.  It was a tough trap and turn.  
 
 
 
I'd have killed for a draw before the match, but this is tough to swallow.

Bradley had already trapped and settled the ball, he could have just kicked it out of bounds and they probably win

Boot it when heading towards his own end?
No, the ball was at his feet and he tried to shield out the defender and maintain possession. He should have just booted it instead. He had already turned at least 45 degrees.

Ghana will beat this Portugal team. What a fucking shame.
 
Isn't Ghana missing Muntari? That might be a key factor. Still, I want to go break something now…

Bradley should have come over and done it for him, ergo, Bradley is shit.

I call bullshit. He had control and took an extra touch for no reason. He and Geoff Cameron have a lot of soul-searching to do.

That was just an unbelievably perfect cross by Ronaldo as well. After he played like shit all game. Damn.
