Today we saw USMNT take on Panama. The first half didn’t have much excitement still 0-0 at half and USA had three fourths of the possession.
A few minutes into the half Donovan got a cross from Beasley that he tried to head in but it barely went wide.
Right after that the US attack fired up and Bedoya played a ball to Donovan whiffed the ball to Shea who tapped it in with ease.
The rest of the game USA just played around not letting Panama score.
Last night we were told that Klinnsman had been suspended from gold cup final against panama. How will this affect the game?:
“ Vegas odds at have not changed as result of Klinsmann suspension. US still favored to win Gold Cup final.”-Grant Wahl
This will definently change the game because of Klinnsmann nailing subs. In the US vs Costa Rica it was tied 0-0 most of the game until Klinnsmann subbed in Brek Shea who scored a few minutes later to win the game. In US vs El Salvador Klinnsmann subbed in Eddie Johnson on a corner 14 seconds later he heads it home. But these players are full of skill and can find a way to win without him.
On Sunday we will see the final of the gold cup, USMNT vs Panama in Chicago IL. Both teams have proved they can score but can they do it against each other we’ll have to see.
Finally I predict a 3-2 win for USMNT.
