Aron Johannsson, United States: C Kyle Rivas/Getty Images There’s probably plenty of fans who fall on both sides of the spectrum about Aron Johannsson. Some will look to the bigger picture and see that the 22-year-old striker was getting in the right positions, even if he wasn’t very good on the ball. The critics will point to Johannsson’s inability to make the most of his chances. On the whole, there’s still a lot to look forward to with the player. You’d have to expect that Johannsson is only going to improve the more time he spends with the national team. It’s better that he’s getting his introduction to the team this far out from the World Cup. Graham Zusi, United States: B+ Greg Fiume/Getty Images It’s a tie between Graham Zusi and Edgar Castillo as to whom was the best US player in the second half. Zusi opened the scoring with a strong, composed finish. In general, he was getting himself into good positions and linking up the attack well. The United States were a different team in the second half when he came on for Landon Donovan. Although Zusi might not have an automatic starting spot, you saw that he’ll definitely have a role going forward, whether it’s making the occasional start, or providing energy off the bench. Edgar Castillo, United States: B+ USA TODAY Sports Castillo benefited from coming on later in the match. He used his speed down the flank really well and was a much-needed injection for the United States. Jurgen Klinsmann sent the 27-year-old out with the express purpose of bombing forward from the attack and providing width and service for the strikers. Castillo didn’t have to worry too much about tracking back to stop the Jamaican attack, because there wasn’t one to speak of.

United States to Warn Arab States Against Palestine Invasion; Will Support Partition

delegation, the JTA is informed reliably, will declare its support of the UNSCOP majority plan, which urges the partitioning of Palestine into Jewish and Arab states. However, it will ask for some geographic modifications and for guaranteed access to ports and water and power facilities for Jews and Arabs equally in the whole of Palestine. WILL AID FORMATION OF INTERNATIONAL POLICE FORCE TO IMPLEMENT U.N. DECISION The attitude of the American Government with regard to implementation of the U.N. decision on Palestine will be outlined so as to leave no doubt that the United States is not only willing to participate in a U.N. program to meet economic and financial problems during the transition period, but also to assist in the formation of any international force which the U.N. may recruit on a volunteer basis to {SPAN}##{/SPAN} of any international force which the U.N. may recruit on a volunteer basis to maintain order in Palestine until the Jewish and the Arab states are established. The Chinese delegation, which is also expected to submit its statement to the Ad Hoc Committee tomorrow, will oppose partition and favor Arab claims to Palestine the grounds of history, law and equity. It will express doubt as to the validity of the Jewish title to Palestine, and will urge U.N. action for a speedy solution of the problem of the displaced Jews. The delegation will emphasize that only after the U.N. gives due recognition to the special position of the Arabs in Palestine, and after it has contributed to the solution of the Jewish refugee problem, will the General Assembly be in a position to request the Arabs to cooperate with the United Nations and with the Jewish Agency in fostering a national home for Jews in Palestine. China has no particular preference as to the form that national home should take, the delegation will point out.

Jones then rips a threatening shot that thwacks off Johansson before it has the opportunity to test Kerr. 7:54 PM ET 61′ The U.S. is pulling a bit of an Arsenal, but without all the technical pomp. That is, they are playing the ballaroundthe Jamaicans and notthrough them. However, the Yanks do not have the finesse to gradually ease their way through the opposition’s defense. 7:50 PM ET 57′ There has been very little link-up play between the United States’ midfielders and forwards, which should worry Jurgen Klinsmann. Jozy Altidore prides himself on holding the ball up and dropping deep, and Johansson has not yet formed a cohesive partnership with his fellow striker. Definitely something for the manager to work on in training and in pre-World Cup friendlies. 7:45 PM ET 53′ A promising piece of attacking play from Jamaica produces some worry on the right side of the American defense, but that’s about it. However, Diskerud gives the ball away in midfield and Tim Howard rushes out of his goal to cut down the advancing attacker. He catches the resulting corner, and danger is averted. 7:42 PM ET 50′ Donovan was very much anonymous in the first half. Thought Zusi would come on at some point, but halftime sub for Donovan seems like a message to LD from Klinsmann. Grant Wahl (@GrantWahl) October 11, 2013 7:41 PM ET 49′ The Americans are moving the ball around with a bit more zip and attacking intent, but a wayward long ball intended for Graham Zusi stops the move in its tracks.
