I’m not sure I’m ever going to be that lucky again.
This past weekend, the United States fell to the Czech Republic 2-1 in a game that was the most-watched international soccer match of all time.
The game had an audience of nearly 20 million on a weekend that the United Kingdom won their opening game of the World Cup in a thrilling 3-2 win over Germany.
I was there, and I could not be more disappointed.
The United States, a team that had never lost to the Russians in the World Series, played a great soccer team that I had never seen before.
They were the team that the media had predicted to beat the Russians and the team with the best offense in the league.
They scored twice, had a goal, and did the little things right in front of the back line.
But their performance on the field was absolutely nothing like the game in which they won it.
The United States scored five goals on four shots.
They had a chance to win on a penalty kick after a good cross from a wide player went over the top of goalkeeper Petr Cech and into the path of the Czech midfielder, Nikita Zaitsev.
But Zaitdev missed the effort.
The Czechs keeper made a fantastic save to deny Zaitseyv the shot.
The U.S. players on the pitch, including forward Jordan Morris, looked at each other, as if to say, “This guy is the greatest.”
The Czechs were the best team in world soccer, and the United State was the team they were supposed to beat.
But in the end, it was the Czechs who dominated the match and ultimately led the way.
This was the greatest team ever.
This was the best match of the year.
You don’t get this type of performance every day.
But on the day that I saw it, it just didn’t happen.
And if you were going to watch the game, you would want to go with the United, right?
So what can we learn from this?
It’s hard to say.
What I can tell you is that this game was absolutely incredible.
There was just so much drama in the game that you couldn’t really see the highlights.
The referee was called on numerous occasions.
In the end he gave the Czech team an excellent penalty kick and that was enough to keep the game scoreless.
Even the referee made some questionable calls.
We’re all familiar with the penalty kick that led to the win.
It looked like Zaitseav got away with an offside call that should have been ruled out.
But then a Czech player pulled the ball back and the referee called it a foul.
Zaitsevs keeper made an excellent save to stop the ball from going into the net.
When Zaits goal was awarded, he was given a yellow card.
The American players in the stands were chanting, “Yellow!
But it was too late.
Zaitzev went down, and United had the ball.
United won the game on a late goal by defender John Brooks, who made a wonderful diving save that saved the game.
If you were watching from the stands, you could see how frustrated the Czech players were.
“They were screaming at the ref and yelling at the goalie,” Brooks told New York magazine.
“They were pissed.
They wanted the penalty shot.
They weren’t happy about what happened.”
There’s a lot to learn from watching this game.
The players on that team looked amazing.
But the real lesson from watching the match was the players on this team don’t always win.
As you can see from the video below, the Czech and United teams were able to put up huge scores.
So if you’re watching this match, you’ll want to make sure you watch the Czech or United teams on television.
That’s what I want you to do.
