Make-up call??? Make-up for what?! The Italian red card was deserved, hell McBride bled profusely and had to be taken off for a few minutes. The US red card was disgusting. Yellow yes but definitely not red. Franz Beckenbauer is right, the refs are handing out cards the way doctors hand out pieces of lollipop to kids.
This has been a really physical game though, guess the US player's allusion to war wasn't too far off
I can't complain about anything the US did in the first half except can we cut it with the stupid offside trap PLEASE? That's all a world-class team needs, an easy goal
Hell Costa Rica scored twice on Germany because of the lame offside trap.
Oh and I don't want to hear about playing for a tie either, a tie isn't going to do anything with the US's terrible goal differential, they need a win. And not only that but a win would put the US in control of its own destiny against Ghana anyway.
