USA Vs. Chile: After A Poor Segment, USMNT Finishes Strong

80:00 - Goal Chile...or not. It looked like Esteban Paredes had his second goal of the match through a header, but he was just barely offside. Marvell Wynne did poorly to not step up and allow it to be a close call.

82:00 - Since the United States equalizer, it's been mostly one way traffic with Chile controlling the play. Sebastian Toro just ruined one of their moves, though, diving when he probably had a shot if he stayed up. He was shown a yellow card. John Harkes said he would have sent the player off. Rules, who needs them?

83:00 - FC Dallas youngster Eric Alexander has been substituted on for Alejandro Bedoya, who was limping. Bedoya was on the fringes of the World Cup squad, but he did not have a very good match tonight.

84:00 - Sean Franklin commits a terrible giveaway in the middle of the field, not his first of the night. He has looked like a shell of the player who had a spectacular season for Los Angles Galaxy.

85:00 - Juan Agudelo has another chance after getting sent through by Teal Bunbury. Unfortunately, Agudelo's shot goes right to the keeper. Bunbury and Agudelo look very confident as a pairing and they have changed the game significantly since they have come on.

88:00 - Though he might have won the MLS Golden Boot, Chris Wondolowski's future USMNT place has been killed tonight, but by no fault of his own. Teal Bunbury is killing it, showing off some nice skills. He hit a backheel flick out of the air to play himself into space.

89:00 - Esteban Paredes dives again. He is not sent off, because that would be outrageous. Once again, John Harkes is displeased about this.

90:00 + 1 - Dax McCarty takes a rip from 25 yards, but his shot is blocked by a defender. He's had a very solid match in the middle of the pitch.

FULL TIME: United States 1-1 Chile. A solid showing from some youngsters, and some damning showings from some others. Teal Bunbury's substitute appearance was probably the highlight of the match, while Tim Ream and Dax McCarty put in great 90 minute shifts.
