Brooks-Alvarado in the 2015 Gold Cup is the gutsiest thing Klinsmann did. It was risky but worth it, since the guys complement each other in style. In the end we lost in the semis to Jamaica (more due to lousy game tactics), and people on these boards focused the blame on Alvarado (Brooks was just as iffy, though). Shame. We never saw Ventura play for the USA in a competitive game again. That game also showed just how useless Aron Johannsson could be.
