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.

So does this prove the US U-20 team could beat the senior team without the U-20 players? I think it may!

Good point, Rafael.

Ironically, I read something that refrenced the Swiss "Young Boys"

Young Boyz - Edu, Adu, Bradley, and Szelta carried the day for USA.

I agree. Maurice Edu was a revelation today, again making the case that you have to look at everyone in the player pool because you can never tell how some players will react in a big international match based solely on their club form.

All US fans were expecting the younger talent to bring a new era in for US Soccer. I hope this is a sign.

For me just happy to get a win.
