He's good in Europe... he's terrible for the US.
The US was killed, KILLED, by their complete inability to finish. Altidore and Bradley both couldn't finish great balls that Donovan sent through in the 1st half.
THen Davies had an open header he missed in the 2nd half that would have tied the score late in the match.
The best teams finish those opportunities, or at least 1 or 2 of them.
The red card was questionable, but not outrageous. With a little luck, Donovan's mugging in the box could have been called a penalty also,. Though, he probably didn't have a shot at the ball anyhow
