Why would you play any other team?
Well, USMNT looked like shit in the first half of this World Cup warmup against Japan in Germany. Down 1-0.
20 some giveaways on the defensive half of the field … In one half.
Dest sent in a perfect cross in the first minutes of the game and Ferrera headed it over the crossbar. That’s a pass you have to finish at the World Cup level.
Pulisic isn’t playing today, as a precaution because he took a small knock in practice… But this is most of our A team. Not good.
Also, 75 minutes into this game and the USMNT hasn’t had a single shot on goal.
Was that header attempt not a shot on goal? I mean, he was wide open in front of the goal.
Not if it isn’t on frame. A shot on goal is either a goal or a save.
We count that header over the bar as a “shot” but not a “shot on goal”.
Aaronson with the only decent look we have had in ages. Couldn’t quite bend it in.
Our backline looks like utter crap.
Thanks for the soccer lesson!
