    BTW, even though they got the decision, USMNT does not look all that good.

    I was not impressed at first but seemingly got more as the game went on. Nice to see us actually press.

    I still say inferior competition so far but can’t complain about the score at all.

    ^^ Agreed. The squad should be running up scores on opponents like this. However, I feel against more competitive squads, the US will be in trouble.

    I'm still not convinced they are "good".

    I didn't even get to watch it, but sounds like exactly the way you described. I did catch the Mexico/Costa Rica game and man that was very entertaining. I couldn't see the US hanging with either, but I'm also of the utmost cup is half empty mindset with the team right now.

    Close game against Mexico.But fell short 1-0.

    Altidore missed on a great chance.

    Pulisic, Arriola, Cannon, and Mckinnie were the best USA players.

    Coach Berhalter choice for starting lineup and subs was iffy.

    Boyd should have started the game instead of Morris and since he wasn't he should have been brought off the bench to replace Morris but neither of these things happened.

    Although the tournament didn't look good for the USA team. They did get better and better throughout the tournament which is a good sign. Yesterday's game was close and not much shenanigans that past USA vs Mexico games tend to have. Although as soon as Mexico got the lead the typical time wasting bs started.

    It had to be Jonathan Dos Santos that scored, didn't it?

    It didn't go nearly as bad as I thought it would, but man gotta bury some of those chances.

    The time wasting thing with soccer is really bothersome. Why canít they have timed games like everyone else. Itís not like every other sport doesnít start or stop the clock when the whistle blows or the ball/puck is out of play. Never understood the reasoning at the professional level for not conducting it this way.

    Why not have VAR either for all games at the professional level?

    Agreed. You knew it was going to be him.


    Meanwhile, I still cant understand why Antuna still has no finish. He did the same thing in this game as he has done for Galaxy.....gets into a great position, moves the ball, and then a poor cross, or out of bounds, and/or no shot. Dude has serious skills, but lacks quality finish.


    The US needed to put away their chances. Too many squandered opportunities in the first half. If you don't put them in when they come up that "easy" you know you are going to lose the match.

    However, it was a nice close match.
