Alina Garciamendez and the goal

I hear that the US Soccer matchtracker gushed about Mexico’s goal to tie Nigeria yesterday, and it sounds as though there were repeated uses of “brilliant” with regards to Alina Garciamendez’s shot. FIFA.com named it the goal of the day.

I agree, that is pretty and impressive coming from the Stanford defender, but why are you following the US games through ussoccer.com’s matchtracker? The ESPNs have all of the US games, usually with better commentary.

For good measure, here is the final celebration, as this 2010 squad have advanced Mexico’s U-20s to their first appearance in the quarterfinals.
