US Defeats Panama 1-0

Well we got the win. A Freddy Adu penalty was the difference between the U.S. and Panama tonight, as the U-23s grabbed 3 points to take them to second in the group behind Honduras. Adu converted from the spot late in the first half, after strike partner Jozy Altidore was upended by Panama goalkeeper Jose Calderon.

In the second half Panama came back with some hard tackling and physical play, while tension between the two teams always threatened to boil over. But our guys kept our cool and they have the three points to prove it.

Now its all about looking forward to Saturday's game with Honduras, but first we're heading back to the hotel to get some dinner...
