Holy Cow...Rodney Wallace is the hero for Costa Rica!

Okay I have been less than enthusiastic about Rodney Wallace on the Timbers' back line.  And I still think I'm right that he's not the man we need as outside defender. And I would be the first to admit that, as a defender,  he does get up there in the fray scoring goals.  But I am stunned to see that the US National team went down yesterday to Costa Rica on a goal headed in by Wallace in the second half.  In his first appearance for his country.  And I guess I'd have to just acknowledge that the guy did it well.  And good for him.   I hope that it perhaps will help him step up his play and his confidence ,  particularly if he stays with our home side.   One thing I love about the Game is that it's always full of surprises.  Atta Boy, Wallace!
