An absolutely beautiful, dominant performance from the Republic; could've easily had twice if not three times as many goals. CHAMPIONS!
There's so much momentum behind this team, on and off the pitch, that anything less than an MLS bid in December will be a disappointment.

In further amazing football action, my hometown team came back from a 0-2 half time deficit against Slovak first division leaders Trenčín. A goal in the 87th minute tied things up, a penalty kick in stoppage time won it for the yellow-n-blues. The best fans in the country saluted the lads afterwards.
