    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.

    I remember him as fast, especially as a center back. His physical tools looked very good. If he got some of the brain farts out of his game, I’m all for calling him in. Liga MX is competitive so it is likely he has improved. Defenders are like wine-they usually need to age a little. 30 is perfect for a World Cup defender. Let’s see what he’s got.

    Went the distance in a 3-2 win.

    On the opening goal he seems to move the wrong way when the centering ball is hit (start of video) though I am not sure it would have mattered. On the second goal the goal scorer runs off his back shoulder clean on goal (0:21).

    Interview:

    With a few injury absences, a red card in a critical match and a few bad games this tournament, Alvarado acknowledges it hasn't all been puppies and cupcakes for him this season. Yet, despite that, he's still enjoying the best season of his career, one he hopes will continue with an upset win this round of the playoffs and a long-awaited return to the national team.

    "It’s not easy to get to the Liguilla. It’s not easy to be here. A really difficult game is coming, and I have to keep taking advantage of that, getting rhythm," he said. "Playing against the champion of Concacaf is a chance to show what I’ve done."
