    First that is not happening. Coaches only change keepers in tournament matches if there is an injury or if the keeper is like Jorge Campos and is needed up front more than in goal.

    The other thing is I am unconvinced Harris is better than Naeher. Different yes, better? I'm not sure. Spending a sub on a change of that sort is unwise.

    BTW: The US is thinking poorly at this point. On many plays it is like choosing the wrong cup, "She chose poorly."

    Isn't it warm enough for a hydration break too?

    Seeing the world through the eyes and brain of a child is a wonderful thing. I am watching with two but the oldest is the the quite one. BTW: The oldest's only real comment so far has been several muttered, "Stupids."

    Rapinoe is getting eaten alive by the Spain right back.

    Rapinoe has gotten dispossessed like 5 times now. She should pass sooner, and stop dribbling so long.

    Rapinoe has gone from just bad to horrible.

    I once had a girl that played for me and lost her temper and tried to throw a punch. After she was red carded I told her that not only was it wrong to try to punch a player but that the attempt was, "The worst punch I have ever seen." That "slap" by Rapinoe was worse.

    The US is missing Horan's control and passing in the middle,

    If she passed to or near rapinoe it wouldn't matter.

    Yellow card.
    I'm guessing they want her for France, IF the USA beat Spain.

    Remind me are yellows cleared at the quarters or after the quarter?

    FWIW: The whole US team is playing slowly today. Not really slow of foot but slow of play.

    just about everyone is

    dunn
    naeher
    rapinoe

    morgan's touch is off
    heath has disappeared since the early part of the game
    mewis is nowhere to be seen

    CBs for the most part are turned on defensively, KOH has been fine, Lavelle only one working on offense

    Edit: agreed above. likely a result of playing thailand, chile, and a more docile than normal sweden

    Get Pinoe out at half. Any one of Lloyd, Press, or Pugh would be a drastic improvement.
