By Alex Labidou

  • Tim Howard
    43
    42
    2.00

    Tim Howard

    Had an average performance. Didn't have to make too many athletic saves but was clearly frustrated at his defenders.

  • Carlos Bocanegra
    22
    62
    3.00

    Carlos Bocanegra

    Was partially responsible for the first goal, as he had a sloppy back pass.

  • Tim Ream
    28
    42
    2.00

    Tim Ream Flop of the Match

    Played arguably the worst first half of his career. Usually plays beyond his years but looked very inexperienced against Luis Tejada. Rebounded with a decent first half but he might not start in the next match for the U.S.

  • C. Goodson
    21
    42
    2.00

    C. Goodson

    His goal redeemed what was a terrible first half. He wasn't able to handle neither Tejada or Perez. His lack of focus gave Panama an early lead. Still, he was able to get the U.S. back into the game by losing his marker and heading in a goal.

  • Steven Cherundolo
    31
    28
    2.50

    Steven Cherundolo

    Was the only defender who had a decent performance throughout the first half, tracked his man well. Wasn't able to move upfield due to Panama's offensive dominance.

  • Clint Dempsey
    65
    14
    3.00

    Clint Dempsey

    Was the only player who was decent on offense on the first half. In the first half he had the best attempt for the U.S. in the match. Had some good chances in the second half that he couldn't convert.

  • Michael Bradley
    20
    83
    3.00

    Michael Bradley

    Solid in the midfield but didn't impact the match as Panama's defense swarmed the U.S. forwards. Had a point blank chance in the 89th minute to level the game for the U.S. and couldn't put it away.

  • Jermaine Jones
    14
    47
    2.50

    Jermaine Jones

    Wasn't able to make much of an impact and his frustration showed when he was pulled off for Sacha Kljestan in the 60th minute.

  • Landon Donovan
    12
    91
    2.50

    Landon Donovan

    Was nonexistent in the first half but had a great free kick to set up Goodson's goal in the second half. Like many of his teammates, missed a clutch shot that would have leveled the game.

  • J. Agudelo
    12
    72
    2.00

    J. Agudelo

    Due to Panama's dominance in the midfield, Agudelo wasn't able to be much of a factor. He had very few touches on the ball. Was subbed in the 60th minute.

  • Jozy Altidore
    17
    78
    3.00

    Jozy Altidore

    Was frustrated often and lost focus when Panama pressured him or fouled him. His first touch was also poor throughout the second half. Was a poor homecoming for Altidore.

    Alejandro Bedoya

    Tried his hand at acting tonight but got a Razzie instead of an Oscar, getting a yellow card for diving. Didn't have much of an impact

    Sacha Kljestan

  • Chris Wondolowski
    17
    52
    2.50

    Chris Wondolowski

    Entered the game in the 77th minute and missed the easiest opportunity of the game. As hard as he works, he is out of his depth for the national team.

  • J. Penedo
    11
    5
    3.50

    J. Penedo

    Held his ground on facing a hungry U.S. attack in the second half. Had some great saves during the second half.

    Pressed the U.S. midfield and was assertive in finding the forwards.

  • Armando Cooper

    3.50

    Armando Cooper

    His strength gave Altidore problems and he won a lot of headers.

  • L. Tejada
    13
    1
    4.00

    L. Tejada Top of the Match

    Was clearly the man of the match. His searing runs in the first half gave both Goodson and Ream fits. The U.S. couldn't contain him.

  • B. Pérez
    8
    0
    3.50

    B. Pérez

    Even though he didn't get any get any goals in, the forward's work rate and pace allowed Tejada to get some space in the game. Good effort.

Substitutions

    Wasn't much of a factor as U.S. comeback attempt led to it having a lion's share of possession.
