    Composed. Quick feet. Far post. Clinical. Seventh of the season. Looking forward to next for USMNT!

    Well, the center back was caught up napping though. Still a very clinical finish. I hope the roll continues for a while in league, Euro and USMNT play.

    Great to see Jozy getting the pitch time to gain experience and mature as a player. He's apparently done well enough with AZ to play a lot. The thing I noticed was his lurking in an onside position and not breaking too quickly toward goal. Also, great to see Gooch getting playing time with Sporting, too.

    Gil, isn't that the point of a good forward to catch the center back napping while getting behind the other D? I'm just glad his movement up front seems to have improved dramatically, he is actually running off the ball.
