    Someone said in another thread that Tino was doing better than the "rookie" Davis. Didn't they both get their first Cap against Cuba? And was it a slam because Davis didn't play U-xx soccer for the US?

    And if that was truely his first Senior Cap, I say well done!

    From an article in The Seattle Times:

    Quaranta praised

    After his team's opening-round 4-1 win over Cuba, U.S. coach Bruce Arena singled out the play of Santino Quaranta as noteworthy among his younger players.

    In his first international game, Quaranta started and recorded an assist on the third American goal. The 20-year-old Baltimore native is one of nine players on the Gold Cup roster who hadn't played a national-team match until Thursday.

    "I think he showed a comfort level on the ball that we haven't seen in young players their first time out," Arena said after practice yesterday at the Seahawks' training facility in Kirkland. "You don't see a lot of that, so that was a positive."
