Jul 31: Walter Smith fielded another somewhat negative line-up in Everton's second pre-season friendly against Burnley at Turf Moor, and pulled off goalscorer Alexandersson at half-time for presumably defying the carefully honed 0-0 tactic he is perfecting for this season's Premiership campaign...

The USA struggled to keep up with a Mexico team desperate for points, who dominated the first half with only moderately effective territorial possession. It was 1-0 after 16 mins when a Joe-Max Moore foul led to a simply executed free-kick floated in to an unmarked Mexican who placed it well wide of Kasey Keller and into the net. Joe-Max Moore's contribution centered around fouls, although, to be fair, the ref was blowing for most of the US contact. Moore failed to appear for the second half....
