  • Late Parlow goal gives U.S. women 1-1 tie with Germany
    Substitute forward Cindy Parlow headed in a Kristine Lilly corner kick in the 76th minute to earn the U.S. women's national team a 1-1 draw with European champion Germany in front of a sold-out, standing-room-only crowd of 5,938 fans at the Anheuser-Busch Conference and Sports Centre in St. Louis. The match began in stifling 90-degree heat and humidity and the temperature never dipped below the low 80s throughout the game. The conditions made for a sluggish pace for both teams, and sloppy play by the USA, which gave away several balls in the back, leading to dangerous German shots. Germany …

  • World Cup: USA 0 Yugoslavia 1 (Final)
    Yugoslavia has defeated the USA 1-0 in their Group F match in Nantes. Slobodan Komljenovic's fourth-minute header proved to be the only goal of a match in which the U.S. did not play poorly. The Americans created some decent chances and had a good amount of the possession. Unfortunately, their lack of finishing again denied them a result. The second half was relatively uneventful for the opening ten minutes. Yugoslavia then substituted Brnovic for young midfielder Dejan Stankovic, and Brnovic helped to set up a shot for a teammate from just outside the U.S. area that went over the crossbar. …
