The commentary is so funny. US seems to be spending most of their time focusing on defense. Probably wise with 2 new first squad starters on the back line.

What a pretty goal. Jones has done well in distribution today.

US Defense has to be better. Cameron adn Johnson look good but Gonzalez and especially Chandler look flat.

Agreed. We should be better in midfield as well, really. Some really lazy soft passing and too many players waiting on balls to get to them. Class goals at both ends though.

I think Jones and Bradley have done well and it seems like in reality they're running a 4-3-3 cause Danny Williams never seems to go forward but Johnson seems to sit up with Altidore and Dempsey. I've also not been loving that no one seems to be getting the ball to Altidore to hold, he's so good at that but it seems like our offense is all on crosses and through chips. Woudl like more Dempsey and Altidore work together but we'll see what happens at half time. Hopefully they get a little more offensive. I'd love to see Zusi come in for Williams.

They all look sluggish. Humidity could be a factor.

Humidity for sure is a factor, since most of the US players play in Europe where it's cooler and dryer right now.
