United States v El Salvador in Gold Cup Quarterfinals - Gamethread, lacks EJ starting

While the Gold Cup is not the most spectacular of international tournaments it is the one we have. Also, it is on Fox (not Fox Soccer), Fox at 1 PM.

Beating El Salvador should not be a challenge. It should not be a challenge with a large crowd dominated by those rooting against America. It should not be a challenge for this B+ squad. But for El Salvador this is one of their biggest matches of the year. So it will be a challenge for the United States.

For Seattle Sounders fans there is also the little thing that Eddie Johnson is not in the starting lineup.

Considering the Sounders put 30 crosses into the box against Colorado having the best ball header in MLS on the end of those could have been handy.

But, Sunday soccer on the big Fox with a huge crowd and some guys trying to make the World Cup squad should be entertaining enough. More soccer is good.
