Graham Zusi scores and the United States really lost to Guatemala a few days ago

New, 5 comments

Yikes.

Sparing all viewers at home another Ian Darke rant "against modern football", Graham Zusi scored a goal mere seconds after the halftime whistle to officially put the fork in Guatemala. Down 3-0, the Guatemalans are throwing Carlos Ruiz's old bones on the field.

Deandre Yedlin played the ball into the box to Gyasi Zardes, and the LA Galaxy midfielder made a mess of the pass. Somehow, the ball ended up in the path of Zusi, and he easily scored for the third goal. Once again, atrocious defense from Guatemala leads to an easy goal for the United States.

The assist is Zardes's second of the match, and the LA man has yet to really control a ball passed to his feet. We have to be approaching some sort of record here.

The only thing remaining in this match is when Christian Pulisic gets cap-tied.

It also must be reiterated that these two teams played four days ago, and Guatemala destroyed the United States.
