Just as a lead up to the WC...Was wondering if anyone saw the game. First half for the U.S. was a display of attacking and defending ineptitude of monumental proportions. There was ZERO creativity up top, terrible marking and positional play from the defense.
Second half the U.S. started with 4 subs at the start and "voila!" completely different team. Great pace, faster distribution, better defending. Kind of scary that they looked that much better.
Just a note: If you see John Bornstein make the field during the WC - PRAY. He plays left back and all I see from him is a clinical display of how to get roasted by whoever is attacking him on that side.
