November 19th, 2009 by Danny Hall

THE UNITED States of America signed off a successful 2009 with a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Denmark on Wednesday night.
The US qualified for next year’s World Cup, reached the final of 2009’s FIFA Confederations Cup and finished 2009 as the top team in CONCACAF World Cup qualification. But they failed to conclude [...]

How the USA qualified for South Africa 2010

November 17th, 2009 by leewilson

The USA have become a familiar face at the World Cup in recent tournaments. Although never considered a realistic option to win the event, they have tended to be capable of causing a shock if other nations are below their best.

Guzan can’t prevent US defeat – Slovakia 1 USA 0

November 15th, 2009 by Danny Hall

A vastly under-strength USA side went down 1-0 to Slovakia on Saturday, with only a 26th-minute Marek Hamsick penalty separating the two sides.
Although the Americans were missing first-choice players including Tim Howard and Landon Donovan, they were in no way disgraced and Bratislava, perhaps best known for horror movie Hostel, was not the scene of [...]

Frankie Hejduk ties it up in El Salvador (March 2009)

The USMNT has had its ups and downs just like any other national team around the world, but the confidence surrounding the group that has been left over going into September might be at an all time high even after a tough loss in Mexico. [...]

It’s 2009 and The Yanks Have Arrived

Charlie Davies – Striker – #9

Many could argue that 1994 marked the arrival of American soccer onto the global stage as the United States hosted its first FIFA World Cup using nine venues across the nation. Although this would be true if we were constructing a time-line, the United States has not been taken [...]

USA on their way

June 27th, 2009 by nufcdad


      The USA look set to book their place in South Africa for the 2010 world cup with relative ease.  They progressed easily into the final hexagonal stage of qualifying (complicated but it works). They were forced to play a rather easy qualifier against Barbados which they won 9-0 on aggregate which led them into the first [...]
