    If i was beating Mexico 2-0 with a 4-4-2 diamond, I would have played Klinsmans 4-2-3-1 formation and just absorb Mexico's attack and counter with green and Donovan on the wings. My best players were bradley 6.5, parkhurst 6, wondo 6, and Besler 6. 2nd half green promising along with Donovan, green should of at least have a fre kick and Eddie johnsons run was even and on. 3-2 USA bad no call ref!
