Colorado Rapids Vs. Columbus Crew Live, MLS Cup Playoffs 2011: Andres Mendoza Strikes Crossbar

The Columbus Crew haven't been able to create anything by getting balls into the box for Andres Mendoza, so the Peruvian international forward has decided to take matters into his own hands. The Crew's best chance of the game has come in the 54th minute via a rather ambitious long shot that didn't look like a whole lot of anything. It was such an unconvincing shot that Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Matt Pickens didn't make any kind of motion towards it. He then watched the shot hit off the crossbar.

The Crew have done so little that Matt Pickens is just watching their shots. They're playing with three supposedly creative and technically sound advanced midfield players. Aside: The Crew are not having a good game.
