Arsenal American Joga Bonito Wednesday:
America, Fuck Yeah! Edition

I'll start off with Benny Feilhaber's stunning gamewinner in the recent Gold Cup final against Mexico, since it is probably the best US goal I've ever seen.

Que golaso del Estados Unidos!

Yesterday, at the FIFA Under 20 World Cup The young US team must have been feeling extra patriotic. They were lucky to draw their first match with South Korea despite getting pretty much dominated, and they faced a Poland team high off their shocking 1-0 with only 10 men upset over always favored Brasil. The US spotted Poland a 1-0 lead and then cued up the soundtrack to "America Fuck Yeah!" and annihilated Poland by scoring 6 unanswered goals to win 6-1. One of the best performances by any US national team, well, ever, with a good bit of Joga Bonito to boot.

Warning: American asskicking ahead: proceed with caution.

Freddy Adu got a hattrick {his 1st was something special} and I'm pretty fired up that we have a dude named "Zizzo", who resembles Cesc Fabregas both physically and in his play. Overall the kind of performance by the youngsters that gives US soccer fans confidence and hope that we will be able to compete at the highest levels in the years to come.

Oh, and if you hate soccer, then just watch this video.

"America, fuck yeah!!!"

Happy 231, America.

Nice....but it looks like the Polish goal went right between the keeper's legs.

Kanu, you've ruined the Copa America for me. Now all I want to watch is Brazil matches, hoping Wenger Luuuuuuvvvvv will get the ball every 10 seconds! I wind up not paying any attention to the damn game.

Who knew The Beatles were American? Fuck yeah!!!

Kanu said...

BIB- Yeah, dude, he says it 200 times if he says it one, but I love it every time, somehow it manages to never get old...

GRG- Fuck yeah, dude! I also like the picture of Roanldo, a Brasilian, helping Oliver Kahn, a German, to his feet.
