That hurts. I feel bad for the guys who busted their asses out there tonight. That's one of those losses that you can build around, or it's one of those losses that can crush you. I'm hoping for the former.
McIntosh was an absolute wall in goal tonight. All of the FC Dallas players went to shake his hand after the game, the only time I remember seeing that was after the US-Brazil game in the 1998 Gold Cup. Romario said that was the best game he had seen a goalkeeper play. This was in the same ballpark.
Now isn't the time to bitch and moan about tactics, although there were some questionable decisions. I really wish the Backs had went for the last corner, Bobo and Lancaster came up for it initially, but then were sent back. It was going to be the last kick of the game, why not go for it?
There's always questions after a game like that.
Celebrate the effort of the boys in white tonight, it was an epic one. It's just a shame that it wasn't enough.
