Cheney, Bocanegra Come Up Big for USA

Bumped. GO BRUINS. -N

The US men's soccer team lost to the Netherlands 2-1 in Amsterdam today, but Bruin alum Carlos Bocanegra scored the only goal for the US on a pretty header.  On the downside, Bruin Jonathan Bornstein gave up a penalty in the first half that resulted in the Dutchmen's first goal. Otherwise, Jon played his usual tough defense and attacked the left right side from his position as left right back.  In addition to his goal, Carlos was solid in the central defense. Here are the highlights:

In the meantime, Lauren Cheney continued her assault on women's world soccer by scoring the winning goal, her fourth in the four-match Algarve Cup, to give the US a 3-2 victory over Germany.  This may be considered Abby Wambach's team, but Lauren's emerging as the team's scorer.  The Algarve Cup is the second-biggest tournament in women's soccer, behind only the women's World Cup.
