Biting criticism for El Salvador soccer players for gnawing on US

Biting criticism for El Salvador soccer players for gnawing on US

The U.S. Men's National Team overcame sloppy play and a shameless opponent to book their trip to the Gold Cup semifinals.

Altidore said after the match that his girlfriend was mad at both he and Romero over what transpired on the field. She's like 'Only I can bite you. "I'm going to go back to the hotel and talk to her about that, she what she says", he joked. Tested early in his first game of the tournament, USA keeper Tim Howard charged out of goal and broke up the play. In a game where absurd and nasty fouls - biting and nipple twisting - by the losers were all too apparent, a few good moments stood out for Coach Bruce Arena's side.

Gonzalez stanched the first-half bleeding in the 41st minute, after an ascendant attacking spell by El Salvador that generated a few nervous moments for the USA and enlivened a boisterous contingent of blue-and-white clad fans.

"I think we're bringing in some experienced players, players of quality, and that only helps our team", Arena said.

Following that, both Bayern and Chelsea will travel to Singapore where they will clash at the National Stadium next Tuesday. Cech also made some decent saves for the North London club in the second half before he was substituted in the 72nd minute.

El Salvador defender Darwin Ceren simply wasn't prepared to allow the latter to add to his tally as he got up close and personal with Gonzalez in the form of a disgusting bite to the American's right shoulder in the box late on in proceedings.

Arena added five starters to his lineup for the knockout round after cruising through group play unbeaten and the US, playing before an announced crowd of 31,615, struggled for cohesion for most of the first half.

The amusing side of El Salvador's tactics was observed by Altidore after the game. Midfield spacing and connection was an issue, as it was in the group stage-although this time more of the problems occurred defensively.

The U.S. won 2-0, and will go on to meet Costa Rica in the semifinals.

The video also shows radar units identifying enemy aircraft and soldiers using anti-aircraft artillery to annihilate targets. It also alleged that the Indian troops had crossed the Sikkim section of the Indo- China border.

After the Salvadorans dominated for the first 15 minutes, Nagbe came alive and created some USA attacks. But for a veteran like Omar Gonzalez, the tournament could mean laying a claim to a starting spot.

This was after a Gyasi Zardes goal was disallowed for being offside but the replay showed that he was onside and the goal should've counted. O.K., they got a lot weird.

F JOZY ALTIDORE, 6: Was a handful for the Salvadoran back line, using his physicality to keep his markers occupied - to the point that they resorted to some, say, questionable tactics.

The former Liverpool striker was also guilty of biting Branislav Ivanovic in a league match against Chelsea. Although the best at bringing the play forward, he was never truly unsafe.
