The refereeing was bad. I agree.
The field wasn’t up to par for a world cup setting? That’s questionable.
Bruce Arena screwed it up?
All I know is that the USA team just isn’t that good. I mean, when you watch them play compared to watching a team like Italy or Germany or Brazil it’s like watching a high school team play.
They play like it’s AYSO.
There’s very little ball control, passes are in the air and rarely on target, they’re slow, lazy, and just generally un-skilled.
Beasley? Donovan? I mean, come on.
Keller being one of the best in the world? I’d say he’s mediocre at best.
I too had very high hopes for this team, but was sorely disappointed.
It’s hard to have a world class team when all the best athletes are off playing basketball and football.
