USA vs. Mexico Friendly: 65th Minute
58th minute: Dos Santos enters the game. Will he change the game? Will he put the game away?
Bocanegra had a good chance on goal. It's why, as he gets older, he still has a spot on the field. He's stable (even if he can't move and has few foot skills), and if he gets on the end of a ball on a set piece, he can score.
60th minute: Juan Agudelo and Brek Shea.
Great sub, Shea for an ineffectual Jones. Jones really has to step up his play if he wishes to be considered in future rosters. Hitting players after they pass the ball is not a benefit to the team.
Agudelo is a great change. It's not just, as the announcers say, that he's young and Klinsmann will be a good influence, he's an intelligent player. Klinsmann has claimed that the main struggles have been the speed of play at the international level for many of the U.S. players, but this game has been comparatively slow-paced.
Beckerman and Shea seem to be doing well at this speed, so is it the speed of play or the intelligence of the players?
With the heavier pressure from the Americans, Mexico hasn't had as much of a cohesive attack. Will they get their second goal, or will the U.S. equalize?
