It helped that Nicaragua just completely forgot to mark him in the box.

Side note...the biggest thing we learned from the group stage is that we A: Have no wingers, and B: Jorge Vilafana is not capable of playing left back in the World Cup.

If you believe A then its hard to blame Vilafana. If you have bad or lazy winger play then your FBs are always isolated and outnumbered.

WTS, I am not a fan of Vilafana really.

added howard, bradley, dempsey, altidore, nagbe, and gonzalez

dismissed bedoya, guzan, johnson, roldan, dwyer, and rowe

wonder if they will give gonzalez a start wednesday...should be the easiest match and would get him some play.

El Salvador and Jamaica play to a dull 1-1 draw, in which both teams played the last 20 or so minutes out seeming content with the result, and not wanting to risk a loss. This clinches the last Knockout round spot for El Salvador

Assuming the Mexico/Curacao game doesn't end completely unexpectedly, the US will face El Salvador Wednesday in Philly, with the winner facing the survivor of Costa Rica/Panama. On the other side, Mexico will face Honduras in Dallas Thursday, with Jamaica facing Canada in the other Quarterfinal.

This tournament is a little pointless. I hope Rowe makes the final cut for Russia - he had a bunch of good performances.

I also despise Arena. He relies on players that will never be good enough and refuses to give youth a chance. The current pool is doing really poorly.

It's either pointless in your mind or not pointless. There's no in between.

In that case let's go with pointless.

How often is the Gold Cup in comparison to the other confederation tournaments? If the top two nations aren't taking it serious, then I think there is a problem.

Yup. Every odd year. The 1st one after a WC year is the important one with full squads. This years is B teams for the bigger teams for the most part due to WCQs and Confed Cup.
