Certainly did ourselves no favors in the 2nd half but we made history. Island of 180k people hosting and winning a Fifa World Cup qualifier.

Klinsmann gets clapped off the stage by German media. #USMNT

I'm jealous of American soccer. They get a proper team, moments of genuine euphoria, likeable plyrs. Why can't England have that?

Morris has featured in THREE straight game-winning goals for the #USMNT. Remarkable for a college kid. Remarkable even for a Prem veteran!

#USMNT has 6 wins in 14 European road games under Klinsmann. U.S. had 6 wins in 28 Euro road games from 1991-2010.

2nd #USMNT game winning goal in 5 days, on the road, versus a Top 6 team, for Bobby Wood.

The real excitement came at the end of the game as the U.S. came from behind with two goals in as many minutes to overhaul a classy opponent, but Gyasi Zardes will be well pleased with scoring the (first) equalizer with about 30 minutes gone.
Zardes’ first U.S. goal came in his seventh international appearance.
A+ ball by Fabian Johnson. A+ run and finish by Gyasi Zardes. A+ goal by the #USMNT.

Zardes w/a nice finish, but has also had handful of plays that simply needed to be better. A work in progress, but goal = confidence booster

Seeing @gyasinho play for USMNT is so amazing! We grew up in the same hood, went to the same school! I'm so proud his accomplishments!

At the same time the Galaxy were drawing a meager 13,391 and 20,195 for their last two home MLS games against Real Salt Lake and the Houston Dynamo respectively, they were selling out the vast Rose Bowl for an exhibition game against Barcelona.
First-choice Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo will miss Saturday’s MLS contest at StubHub Center against the Vancouver Whitecaps after he was called up to Panama’s squad for two friendlies set for Wednesday and Saturday against Ecuador.
The 33-year-old stopper has made more than 100 appearances for Panama.
Oft-injured striker Robbie Keane, meanwhile, will leave immediately after the game for a Ireland friendly against England scheduled for Sunday that precedes a June 13 Euro 2016 qualifier against Scotland in Dublin. He will miss the Galaxy game that day against the Columbus Crew.
The Ireland captain and all-time leading scorer has made just six MLS appearances for the Galaxy this year.
Goalkeepers — Jeff Caldwell (University of Virginia; Todd, N.C.), Ethan Horvath (Molde FK; Highlands Ranch, Colo.), Zack Steffen (Freiburg; Downingtown, Pa.)
defenders — Cameron Carter-Vickers (Tottenham Hotspur; Westcliff on Sea, England), Matthew Miazga (New York Red Bulls; Clifton, N.J.), Shaquell Moore (Unattached; Powder Springs, Ga.), Erik Palmer-Brown (Sporting Kansas City; Lee’s Summit, Mo.), Desevio Payne (FC Groningen; Greenwood, S.C.), John Requejo (Club Tijuana; Carpinteria)
midfielders — Kellyn Acosta (FC Dallas; Plano, Texas), Paul Arriola (Club Tijuana; Chula Vista), Russell Canouse (Hoffenheim; Lancaster, Pa.), Marco Delgado (Toronto FC; Glendora) Emerson Hyndman (Fulham; Dallas), Joel Soñora (Boca Juniors; Buenos Aires,)
forwards — Jordan Allen (Real Salt Lake; Rochester, N.Y.), Bradford Jamieson IV (LA Galaxy; Los Angeles), Rubio Rubin (Utrecht; Beaverton, Ore.), Maki Tall (Red Star; Washington, D.C.), Tommy Thompson (San Jose Earthquakes; Loomis, Calif.)
The U.S. plays against Myanmar May 30; New Zealand June 2 and Ukraine June 5 in its group games. Camp opens Monday in Carson.
The Galaxy will play Club America 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 11 at StubHub Center and Barcelona 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 21 at the Rose Bowl.
Both games are part of the 17-game, 10-team International Champions Cup that also includes the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.
Tickets to the Club America game go on sale to the general public May 7; ticket information for the Barcelona game has yet to be announced.
“Southern California is the perfect location to host multiple soccer matches,” said Charlie Stillitano, chairman of promoter Relevent Sports. “Last year’s match with the LA Galaxy at the Rose Bowl against Manchester United drew more than 80,000 fans, illustrating the demand for world-class soccer in the area. We are thrilled to bring both Club América and Barcelona and their rabid fan bases to Los Angeles. The reigning MLS Cup winners facing the best teams in Mexico and Spain will provide electric soccer in front of an engaged and raucous crowd.”
The Galaxy met Barcelona in 2009 in front of 93,137 at the Rose Bowl in a 2-1 loss that saw David Beckham notch the lone LA goal.
