International Roundup: U.S., Mexico, Croatia & more

i-4cabf215786fe978bfad3f968abdc126-movsisyanandorra.jpgPasadena City College product Yura Movsisyan, right, scored in his third consecutive Euro 2012 qualifier as Armenia beat minnow Andorra 4-0 Tuesday. It was the 23-year-old’s third goal in five games for his native Armenia.

The U.S. immigrant, who has a green card and could have played for the U.S., might have been useful in Philadelphia as the U.S. played to a desultory 0-0 draw with Colombia.

The best thing about the game (again): the midfield performance of Jermaine Jones, especially in the first half, who clearly has Bundesliga vision and class.

U.S. lineup: 18-Brad Guzan; 2-Jonathan Spector (13-Eric Lichaj, 46), 5-Oguchi Onyewu (capt.) (16-Michael Parkhurst, 46), 21-Clarence Goodson, 14-Heath Pearce; 19-Maurice Edu (9-Eddie Johnson, 46), 15-Jermaine Jones, 4-Michael Bradley; 11-Stuart Holden (22-Benny Feilhaber, 59), 17-Jozy Altidore, 23-Brek Shea (8-Clint Dempsey, 46)

In other games Tuesday it was:

* Mexico 2 Venezuela 2

* England 0 Montenegro 0

* Croatia 2 Norway 1

*All the results are here.

    A stationary Adu would show more “soccer” than the whole US offense on display in the last 2 games. Why Bradley doesn’t show him equal love as compared to the rest of these Euro bench-sitters is perplexing.
