Youtube Flashback: US vs. Mexico – Oct. 25, 2000
   October 8, 2015 (8:09 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Because why not?

Second half goals from Josh Wolff and 18-year old Landon Donovan provided the margin of victory as the United States and Mexico renewed their long-standing regional rivalry in front of more than 60,000 fans at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

I can still remember hugging approximately 50 random strangers and then waving a flag out of our car window on our drive home. Good times.

Youtube Flashback: The beginning of Dos a Cero
   April 14, 2015 (7:46 AM) by Matt Benson
 

What better way to get you ready for Wednesday’s game then taking you back to the birth of Dos a Cero.

It was February 28, 2001 and the site was Columbus, Ohio.  The US were hosting Mexico at Columbus Crew Stadium in the opening game for both teams in the Hex.  It was cold and Mexico didn’t like that.

The US entered the game on a two-game wining streak over Mexico after going 0-4-4 in the previous eight meetings with El Tri.  Bruce Arena threw out the following starting lineup (4-4-2):  Friedel; Regis, Agoos, Pope, Sanneh; Jones, Armas, Reyna (c), Stewart; McBride, Moore.

Enjoy the game!

Youtube Flashback: US vs. Panama – 2013 World Cup Qualifier
   February 4, 2015 (6:45 AM) by Matt Benson
 

We haven’t done one of these in a while, but I thought I would post a game against Panama and I already posted a 2004 World Cup Qualifier last year.  I also picked this game as I was in attendance.

This was Seattle’s first time hosting a WCQ since 1976 and also featured Geoff Cameron playing some central midfield next to Michael Bradley (and a rare Stuart Holden sighting!).

The starting lineup that day:  Tim Howard; Brad Evans, Omar Gonzalez, Matt Besler, DaMarcus Beasley; Michael Bradley, Geoff Cameron; Eddie Johnson, Clint Dempsey, Fabian Johnson; Jozy Altidore.

Youtube Flashback: US vs. Panama – 2004 World Cup Qualifier
   September 10, 2014 (6:26 AM) by Matt Benson
 

This international break is killing me.  We are almost back.  That said, here is a 2004 qualifier which features a Landon Donovan brace and a Eddie Johnson hat trick while coming off the bench.

The game was played at RFK Memorial Stadium on October 13, 2004 and ended with a US 6-0 win in the penultimate game of the Third Round of CONCACAF qualifying.

The US’s starting lineup looked like this:  Keller; Hejduk, Pope, Berhalter, Bocanegra; Zavagnin, Beasley, Donovan(c), Lewis; McBride, Wolff.

Enjoy.

Youtube Flashback: US vs. Slovenia – 2010 World Cup
   June 11, 2014 (9:51 AM) by Matt Benson
 

One more Youtube Flashback of a prior World Cup game to get you ready for Monday’s game.  While everyone always goes to Landon Donovan’s goal against Algeria when talking about the 2010 World Cup, the second half of the Slovenia game was fun yet frustrating at the same time.  So sit back, relax and enjoy the whole game.

Youtube Flashback: US vs. Mexico – 2002 World Cup
   June 5, 2014 (10:00 AM) by Matt Benson
 

I was flipping through my cable’s onDemand the other night and found a World Cup category under ESPN.  They had this game on there, but in a condensed 22 minutes, so I thought I would find the full game since it is a good one.

Dos a cero.

Youtube Flashback: US vs. Trinidad & Tobago – 1989 World Cup Qualifier
   May 21, 2014 (9:36 AM) by Matt Benson
 

The shot heard round the world.

Paul Caligiuri scored one of the most famous goals in US Soccer history during this November 19, 1989 qualifier, clinching the US’s first World Cup berth since 1950.  Plus, this game has a much younger JP Dellacamera doing the play-by-play.

Enjoy.

Youtube Flashback: “Our Way: The Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Story of the USA’s 2002 World Cup Journey”
   May 14, 2014 (6:35 AM) by Matt Benson
 

We can thank Josh Deaver for finding this bad boy on Youtube.  While ESPN premiered their latest 30 For 30/Hard Knocks-type show on the USMNT last night (which was fantastic), US Soccer released a DVD in 2002 which followed the team during its wild run during the 2002 World Cup.

And here is the hour-long documentary for your enjoyment.  My personal favorite moment comes around the 9:50 mark with Frankie Hejduk giving a young Landon Donovan some advice in a hotel room as they look out the window with some reggae music being played in the background.  Good times.
