US send Jamaica out of FIFA World Cup

Oct 12 2013, 7:18am CDT | by IANS

Kansas City, Oct 12 (IANS/CMC) Jamaica's dream of qualifying for next year's football World Cup in Brazil ended with a 0-2 defeat against the US Friday night.

Kansas City, Oct 12 (IANS/CMC) Jamaica's dream of qualifying for next year's football World Cup in Brazil ended with a 0-2 defeat against the US Friday night.

Second half goals from midfielder Graham Zusi and forward Jozy Altidore rocked Jamaica after both teams were tied nil-all after an evenly contested first half at Sporting Park.

Jamaica pressed the attack in the opening minutes, dominating possession and pestering goalkeeper Tim Howard.

But the Americans turned up the heat in the second half and finally broke through with 13 minutes left in the game.

Zusi, a halftime substitute for Landon Donovan, delighted his hometown fans, cutting a low shot into the lower left corner off an assist from Alejandro Bedoya.

Altidore sealed Jamaica's fate with an 81st-minute goal, easily finishing a left-footed shot into a wide open net after Edgar Castillo calmly crossed the ball in from the left side with a rolling pass just above the six-yard box.

Jamaica's best scoring threat actually came on the final shot of the game as Theo Robinson's close-range blast from the right side was batted away.

It was another bitter defeat to the US for Jamaica, who lost 1-2 on June 7 in Kingston when Brad Evans scored in second-half stoppage time.

The defeat means that Jamaica have now been eliminated from the World Cup qualifying contention.

The Reggae Boyz entered the game against the US still mathematically in the running for a fourth-place playoff spot to face Oceania region winner New Zealand.

The US had already qualified for Brazil 2014, heading the CONCACAF table with 16 points while Jamaica sit at the bottom with a mere four points.

Sep 18 2014 4:26pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Wolfsburg were down 4-0 in stoppage time of their Europa League opener against Everton. The match was over and they could have hopped on the plane back to Germany right then and there. But Ricardo Rodriguez would not have it because he is better than that. He is phenomenal, and he wanted to show off. So he scored a perfect, bending free kick that left Tim Howard helpless.

FIFA 15: Tim Howard and the Top 20 Goalies in New Game

Sep 16 2014 8:39pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Tim Howard is the United States' pride and joy, but while the 35-year-old Everton goalkeeper is still quite valuable and effective, he's not amongst the top five in net, say the ratings makers for FIFA 15. On the recently released list of top goalkeepers in the game, Howard came in at a respectable overall rating of an 82. That makes him tied for 14th in the FIFA universe of keepers. Who's No. 1?
