No that was embarrassing. We were getting schooled. Thank You FH for being the only inspiring person of the match. Oh, what I meant to say was only player on our side. Brad Guzan doesn't fit the bill with US as our backup nor Aston Villa...Very Uninspring....Kudos El Salvador. Lets hope we can step it up with TnT...I just hope we don't get out numbered by the TnT supporters group in Nashville....
