On Friday night, Kyle Beckerman and Jermaine Jones seemed to be having a competition to see who could play worse.
Beckerman was poor for most of the night, giving away possession and getting beat on the dribble repeatedly.
In the 22nd minute, Beckerman was beat and forced to foul. The resulting free-kick went off the inside of Beckerman’s right leg and wrong-footed Tim Howard, resulting in Jamaica’s first goal of the night.
Beckerman was beaten again for an open shot in the 27th minute and again in the 56th minute. He was mercifully replaced in the 61st minute.
It is difficult as a fan to be so hard on players who repeatedly answer their nation’s call-ups. The fault with Beckerman’s selection lies firmly with USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann. Klinsmann needs to be seriously questioned if Beckerman dons the USMNT jersey again.
