USA-Switzerland 2nd Half Live Blog
FULL TIME: USA 1 SWITZERLAND 0 . MY MAN OF THE MATCH: MAURICE EDU
+ 2 Adu's free kick right on the frame but saved by the Swiss keeper.
+ 1 Freddy Adu taken down right outside the box! He's playing out of his mind!
Stoppage Time 2 minutes: Robbie Findley gets his first cap replacing Clint Dempsey.
90th Minute: FREDDY FREDDY chant coming from the Swiss crowd!
89th Minute: Freddy Adu again behind the Swiss defense, he goes down in the box but the ref says play on
88th Minute: Freddy Adu behind the Defense, oh he just missed it, with the keeper closing him down.
87th Minute: Save for Guzan.
86th minute: GOAL!!!!! I EAT MY WORDS GOAL FOR BRADLEY WITH SZETELA SETTING IT UP AFTER EDU CREATED THE OPPORTUNITY. THE KIDS ARE PRETTY DARN GOOD!
85th Minute: Swiss attack, save by Guzan. With his last sub I'd get Dempsey off.
84th Minute: Szetela for Lewis. I do not like this substitution. Adu with the free kick.....HAND BALL! No, they didn't call it. Oh geez.
83rd Minute: It's well hit but Guzan saves it!
82nd Minute: Oh Oh! Guzan touches the ball outside the box. Free Kick for the Swiss in a very dangerous area.
80th Minute: Adu holds his own and draws an attacking throw in. Foul called on Eddie Lewis for a forearm on the defender.
79th Minute: This game is in Basel, yet you can hear chants of Freddy!
78th Minute: Freddy with a great flick on to create a scoring chance but it is cleared by the Swiss.
77th Minute: Freddy Adu about to come on. He'll replace Twellman.
76th Minute: Guzan with two saves on that sequence.
75th Minute: Foul on Lewis outside the box. Free Kick for Switzerland.
74th Minute: The Swiss are pushing forward in numbers and draw another corner.
72nd Minute: Barnetta for Switzerland with a good chance in the box, and he goes down but it was a fair challenge by Califf.
70th Minute: Twellman fails to run on to a good ball from Lewis. Switzerland comes back with a great counter attack but Guzan is true again.
69th Minute: A great shot but well held by Guzan.
68th Minute: Foul on Califf in a dangerous area. A big chance for Switzerland.
67th Minute: Eddie Lewis swings a free kick into the box and it is cleared.
66th Minute: Wow, the Swiss should have had a better shot there. The Swiss attacker slipped and got off a bad shot in the box.
65th Minute: Edu continuing to impress.
63rd Minute: Still a stalemate.
60th Minute: Switzerland knocking the ball around but with little intent.
55th Minute: A foul on Eddie Lewis. Another questionable call.
54th Minute: Chance for Switzerland but cleared out for a corner.
53rd Minute: A horrible call on Edu, and a yellow is issued.
52nd Minute: The US really pilling on the chances here.
Even at his advanced age, Eddie Lewis is the best crosser the US has, hands down.
50th Minute: The US holding some nice possession and Eddie Lewis has drawn a corner. Great cross from Lewis off the corner to Califf but he can't finish it.
47th Minute: Good ball from Feilhaber, but Dempsey's lay off for Twellman is inaccurate.
46th Minute: US Changes, Guzan and Califf on. So a goalie change for the US. Onyewu off.
Okay we are back.
