USA vs Poland Report

October 9, 2010 By William Mbaho
USA hold Poland to a 2-2 draw
Poland wasted chances to beat the US in Chicago, but a confident American side kept their composure to hold their side level.

Both sides kept up pressure in the two halves, with Poland looking slightly better but still failing to beat their opponents.

The US scored early after midfielder Jermaine Jones fed a pass through to Jozy Altidore, which he struck into the net in the 12th minute. Jones’s made his debut into the squad with a skilful display that caught the Polish midfield off guard, and will surely feature again in coach Bob Bradley’s side.

Poland tied the game in the 26th minute, after a defensive error in the box by Oguchi Onyewu was quickly punished by Adam Matuszczyk to beat keeper Tim Howard.

Onyewu made amends for his error with a header in the second half to beat keeper Artur Boruc in the 52nd minute. Golden chances were subsequently missed by both sides, but Jakub Blaszczykowski and his side drew level when the Polish midfielder fired a shot from close range into goal in the 73rd minute.

Both teams will be pleased with their effort, and US coach Bob Bradley will know his team are strong under pressure. Poland will need to work on their finishing to in the build-up to the 2012 European Cup.
