Anyone care to recap the match?  Missed it....hoping the 2-0 loss was Bull ? 

USA had good pressure on offense.... couldn't capitalize....CR scored on horrible d (Howard kick to midfield intercepted) in 30th min or so.

 

USA had good pressure in 2nd half but Java's.kept them out of net and CR again capitalized on bad outlet.. 

 

CR had 1 ST up top but he split defenders both times...

The US controlled most of the game with 62% possession.  They had several opportunities to score and an obvious pk not called in the first half.

 

CR just sat back as usual and played boring football but took advantage of their few opportunities.

 

Both goals were due to poor defense and passing out of the back.

Watching Mexico-Panama and a couple comments:

- Pulisic and Nagbe can go one on one... other countries every front man can

- The out of the box accuracy is horrible... only Dempsey can keep it low and on target. Nagbe, and Bradley had a couple shots that looked like frustrating shoot it..

 

Many other.countries are closer outside of box.

Costa Rica was 21st in the last FIFA world rankings... USA 26th (and USA got a Gold Cup boost)... how could ESPN act like we blew it to a much worse team?

 

Hondorus is 75th.... 

Exactly. Costa Rica is good. Honduras, not so much. Also, two of the last three are at home.

What on earth is Gonzalez doing?  He had about 3 different opportunities to make that tackle...

Zusi just lets the guy run in between. He's getting abused so far this game. Man, do they need Yedlin healthy. 

 

US showing zero hustle defensively, but to be expected with aging vets Zusi, Bradley, Beasley playing in the back.

 

When will US soccer learn that they need the speed and verve of youth. This side looks SLOW.

I will give Bradley as much crap as the next guy but he has been our only solid midfielder the majority of the hex, save our first game.  And he hasn't done anything really poor today.  Gonzo, Beasley and Zusi though....wow are they bad and slow
