The U.S. managed a shocking 1-1 tie against England when English goalie Robert Green let an easy shot from Clint Dempsey bounce off his hands and into the goal. George Vecsey, sports columnist for The New York Times, tells us how this miss will affect Green's fate. He also reports on U.S. goalie, Tim Howard, who suffered a rib injury during Saturday's match, and looks ahead to today's games.
