That save that Green made.....or lack there I was speechless. I've played keeper all of my life, played varsity 4 years and would have gone to college to play it if my knees had held out. He forgot every single fundamental of goalkeeping. He played that ball to the side of his body..... one bobble of the ball and you get, well, exactly what happened. When the balls on the ground like that you play the ball into your body. Your body is always ALWAYS between the ball and the net. I'm sorry, but a child could have made that save. This is the equivalent of an outfield in baseball trying to catch a routine fly ball with his foot.

And everyone saying that USA got lucky..... if your goalkeeper can't make fundamental saves..... you don't deserve to win.
