Crew's Rogers added to US roster for Mexico friendly
In-form midfielder replaces injured Rangers star Maurice Edu


Columbus Crew midfielder Robbie Rogers has seen a rise in his form in recent weeks.

His resurgence for the Eastern Conference leaders has led to a recall to the US national team for Wednesday’s friendly with Mexico (9 pm ET, ESPN2/Univision, get tickets).

Rogers replaces Rangers midfielder Maurice Edu, who was injured in a friendly against EPL side Chelsea on Saturday in Glasgow. Rangers lost 3-1.

Recap: MLS youngsters spark US draw with Mexico

Shea, Rogers connect to lead Americans back from early deficit


PHILADELPHIA – A second-half spark from a trio of Major League Soccer youngsters saved the debut of new US head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, as the Americans rallied from an early deficit to earn a 1-1 draw against continental rival Mexico in an international friendly at Lincoln Financial Field.

Columbus Crew midfielder Robbie Rogers scored the equalizer just a minute after his substitution into the game and FC Dallas winger Brek Shea picked up the assist not long after he replaced Jermaine Jones, helping erase a brilliant strike from Mexico’s Oribe Peralta in the 17th minute.

Finishing Well
Buddle, Dempsey, Altidore score as US defeat Slovenia in 2011 finale



Revenge of a sort gave the US national team a win in their final match of 2011.

Edson Buddle, Clint Dempsey and Jozy Altidore each scored in the first half as the United States defeated Slovenia, 3-2, on a foggy night at Stožice Stadium in Ljubljana on Tuesday. The two teams tied 2-2 under controversial circumstances during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, where the US were denied a seemingly good late winner.

The Americans' trio of goals on this night were one more than their previous total in six games under the guidance of Jurgen Klinsmann. The win marked Klinsmann’s second victory in charge, taking his record as US manager to 2-4-1 in the final international match scheduled for 2011.

It seems US head coach Jurgen Klinsmann will get his second taste of the heated rivalry against Mexico in an exhibition match to be played this August. The venue? Estadio Azteca. Can Klinsmann finally lead the Americans through the humid, smoggy, and raucous atmosphere to their first-ever victory south of the border? (Goal.com - Jan. 14, 2012)

Recap:
Clark's late header gives US 1-0 win over Venezuela
Substitute makes no mistake in stoppage time for dramatic win



GLENDALE, Ariz. – Time after time, chance after chance, the US national team pushed hard for a possible winning goal against Venezuela, only to be turned away.

Then, a foul put more time on the stoppage-time clock in the second half, and the US took advantage. Jermaine Jones’ corner kick found Ricardo Clark’s head, and Clark beat Venezuela goalkeeper Jose Morales in the eighth minute of extra time.

The final whistle sounded just seconds later, and the US celebrated a 1-0 victory before 22,403 at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Stone-Cold Stunner
Dempsey scores as US notch a huge upset win over Italy



The US national team produced their first-ever win against Italy thanks to Clint Dempsey’s second-half strike in a 1-0 win at Stadio Luigi Ferraris in Genoa on Wednesday.

The pivotal moment came in the 55th minute when Fabian Johnson whipped in a teasing ball that Jozy Altidore laid off superbly for the on-rushing Dempsey, who drilled his shot hard and low past the despairing dive of Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

The win marks the first time the US have defeated Italy in 11 attempts since the nations first met 82 years ago. It also marks the first time Italy have lost in Genoa since 1924.

Re: INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLIES

Here? Just a friendly
In Italy? A fiasco



Here in the US we're fed a steady diet of "don't get too worked up about friendly wins." And it's sound advice that goes all the way back to the 3-6-1 thrashing of Austria in the lead-up to the 1998 World Cup.

In Italy, though, they are a bit more... passionate. Or uncompromising. Or irrational.

However you want to put it, the Italian press is, in the wake of the US' 1-0 win over the Azzuri on Wednesday, showing the fight and engagement that both the players and fans in Genoa clearly lacked (the crowd, I think we can all agree, was terrible).

La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian soccer bible, called the US win "A fiasco." And it gets more colorful from there.
