USA Vs. Jamaica, 2014 World Cup Qualifying: Graham Zusi Hits The Bar

The United States is off to a flying start in this must-win match and are already showing the width that they lacked on Friday. And it's hat width that created the Americans' first great chance, a shot off of the bar by Graham Zusi.

The American attack started with Steve Cherundolo, who got froward from his right back position and stretched the Jamaican defense before cutting it back for Zusi. The midfielder then took a couple touches to settle before ripping a shot that glanced off the bar.

Already early on, the U.S. is showing some width. Zusi has also flashed his skills, which are usually best from a wider position that allows him to cut in, as he did there. From the start, it is clear that the Americans are attacking Jamaica differently than they did last week.

Meanwhile, before the match Frankie Hejduk did this. Frankie Hejduk is the best and if you hate him you hate America.
