Who watched the game today and where did you watch it? I’m going to watch it later tonight following the MLS game that is starting now but the excitement in Southwest Springfield is high enough that I couldn’t avoid hearing the score. Doesn’t matter, I’m looking to make my own assessment anyway. Here’s the game report from US Soccer:
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (May 29, 2010) – In its final match before leaving for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, the U.S. Men’s National Team put together a marvelous 2-1 come-from-behind win against Turkey with second half goals from Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey, both of which were assisted by Landon Donovan. A crowd of 55,407 red, white and blue-bathed fans turned out on gorgeous afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field and their energy helped propel the U.S. team to a an excellent second half performance.
You can get more details and video on the US Soccer website.
