It was more or less a cakewalk for the US team versus Cuba. The Americans were just too quick and skillful for the Cuban team, who often resorted to chopping down the US players, and this eventually caught up with them as Yoel Colome earned a red card before the end of the first half.
DaMarcus Beasley was back to his usual self – he could be the most important US player. And then there was the introduction of Jose Francisco Torres who plays for Pachuca in Mexico, as he’s decided to play for the US over Mexico. He looked smart and savvy on the ball.
The goal of the game has to go to Jozy Altidore. He broke free and then cut back nicely to slot the ball home. Take a look at all the goals in the video below.
