The US hasn't played this good (and up to their potential) since 7-8 months ago. We have very good defenders and two very good goalkeepers. Our attack is really depended on how well Donovan decides to play.Knight said:They had difficulty breaking Iraq down too. But USA played a much better attacking game than Iraq.
Spain disappointed me.
The US did not exactly destroy Spain. The US played a very good defensive game and the shots were 29-9 in favor of Spain.Senalco said:How can a team get beaten 3-1, then 3-0 and then somehow bounce back to Qualify with a 3-0 win, then destroys the world Champions 2-0??
These red cards against the US have all been a joke. What are these refs seeing that I'm not? Yesterday's against Spain was no different. I watched that play and replay and could not for the life of me see what warranted a straight red in that challenge.jonadona said:The US did not exactly destroy Spain.

The US were very shaky prior to their trip to SA. But they were playing better and better, even after the first two defeats. The red cards are what really hurt them against Italy and Brazil.
