Is the USA v Italy game on ESPN3.com or will it be nationally televised on ESPN or ESPN2 or some other random channel?

US is struggling early on, Italy have been close a few times but offside a lot

I'm not liking the new kits either

Good win for Klinnsman, needed that first signature win.
The defense came under a lot of pressure but got the job done, Italy were definitely the more attacking team and the US found a way to get a goal and defend hard.

Well, guess the key is an ugly kit. I guess I can deal.

Duh!!!

Didn't get to see the game, but saw video of the goal. You mean to tell me, if Jozy plays his role up top and holds people off the ball he can set people up? No way..

Good win against what looked on paper to be a pretty quality Italy side. Honestly, I didn't expect it without Landon, so I'm glad we apparently had people step up. Big time.

RE: matches on wednesday 2/29 


some said the two best american players were not there - donovan and rossi.


anyone else watch the u-23 team beat mehico 2-0  (  that score seems familiar )   the chosen juan and freddie  "i'm close to 30" adu with goals 2 minutes apart.    for the first 65 minutes, it was the best possession game i've ever seen by a usa team in tight spaces.  then we let the subs on.   somebody tell me why teal bunbery is supposed to be good.


i'll be headed up the trace to see us qualify in nashville.  can we still have 3 overage players ??

The best player for my money right now for the US is Dempsey and it isn't even close.
Donovan can be kept on the bench until he retires, he's overrated IMO and always has been. He's scored a few well timed goals but right place, right time is easy when you're on the pitch as much as him in attacking roles

Ah, I used to be a Donovan hater, too. I think he's matured over the last two years and started playing the role(s) we need him to.

With that said, Demps is on fire and is no doubt our best.

To be honest I use to not like either one, Donavan or Demps, But IMO they have really both came on the last couple of years and are playing much better, you could always tell Demps had the talent to be the best player on our team but he's really came on and plays
a complete game now, Donavan can be hot and cold, some games he looks like the best player on the team the next game he looks like he is lost and has no impact.

I think I could tolerate Donovan a bit more if he attempted to stick around in the top European leagues like Dempsey and some of the others have. He has an open door invite to Everton after his loan stints where he did better than most probably expected but he keeps coming back to LA. I understand that living in LA might be more attractive to some people than England, but to waste the prime years of your career in a less than stellar league when given the chance to play with the best is selling yourself short.
