It's unfortunate that the same can't be said for Brad Guzan, who was the States' best player, proving himself well deserving of the armband. Guzan will continue to be Tim Howard's understudy, and until he gets a starting job at club level, it will be difficult for him to make his case as the number one. But he did give the U.S. a rare clean sheet, and given the match's first 25 minutes, had he allowed a goal, nobody would have blamed him.
Perhaps Tim Howard would have also made those reads?
That's from something that will be up in a few minutes at SBNation's main Soccer page. While proofing it, I had this sudden urge to share my thoughts with Community Villa and see what everybody thought about Guzan's performance.
I'm always concerned about rust, given how little he plays for club or country. If Mr. No. 2 has gathered rust, he left it in Birmingham.
