The top-rated guys....
Michael Bradley (8.5) - This would have been a great performance even without the nasty strike for his 10th USMNT goal. Bradley was both "The General" and the repeated release point for attack. His terrific pass facilitated the second Donovan goal and an even better one set up the hat trick. Molto bene!
Jermaine Jones (8.5) - A goal and two helpers would be enough for high plaudits, but the Schalke wild man was also quite sound. His second assist was well-earned with a beautiful cutback pass. As evidenced, Jones is also a menace in high pressure.
Landon Donovan (9.5) - The degree of difficulty and lack of competitive weight are all that separates the LA Galaxy star from a perfect grade. Not merely content to finish three times in his record-setting 125th US start, Donovan was also the main engine moving forward. Heck, even his miss off the post was class.
Jose Francisco Torres (8) - Those tricky feet and splitting passes were obviously free to wander tonight, and the Pachuca man took full advantage. Torres also nearly took advantage of snoozing Scotland with a quick free kick off the woodwork.
