howard gave us every opportunity to at least get it to a shootout and we just couldnt finish our chances. great goal by green, we fought and had plenty of chances to equalize it. so close

Why was there only 1 minute added on the end? And the ref ended the game with like 5 seconds left. Subjective crap at the end of the game like that is one thing that is probably turning Americans away from Soccer.

Maybe, maybe not. I admit I'm overly biased against Donovan, regardless of his history, because of his sabbatical. We needed him and he was playing with kids in Cambodia.

That's not a teammate I want around me or my team.

Tip your hat to Belgium. The better team won today. Awesome job Tim Howard and the defense (for most of the match). Very grateful Lukaku didn't start or we don't have extra time.

However, our future looks bright. Love seeing Yedlin, Green, and other guys. We need a little more oomph at forward and in midfield and get more depth. Defense and goalkeeping are outstanding (even when Howard leaves, Guzan will be solid).

Sad to see it end but it was a fun ride!

Question for the folks who follow soccer. Given that Tim Howard is 35, does the USMNT immediately move on to the next goalkeeper (Brad Guzan) with eyes on the future (World Cup in Russia in 2018) or does Howard continue playing until his performance declines to the point where he's no longer the best goalkeeper on the team? I've heard people saying he likely played his last game in a US uniform. He's clearly still at the top of his game, seems sad that you'd immediately say "see ya" after such a magnificent performance.

I suppose this question goes for any of the older players in the team. Do you immediately move on from those guys because they very likely won't be around in 2018? As someone who hasn't followed soccer until the World Cup (but who plans to going forward), I'm not sure how this works.

Howard will continue to play until he declines.

4 years is a long way away, you never know what will happen.
People didn't see Landon Donovan not making the team this time 4 years ago

That's a very good question. I think Howard has earned the right to play until his performance declines drastically or he chooses to give it up. I'm not worried about Guzan because he gets plenty of experience playing for Aston Villa. When it's his time to step up, we will be fine.

As for the older players, guys we will probably need to replace are Beasley (I thought he was solid, we will miss him), Beckerman, possibly Dempsey, and of course Howard. Zusi will probably be replaced as well as we should have better options at that point. Our defense looks set for a long time so that's good news.

I think that the important thing is to remember we are still better than England, Spain and Italy.
