I only had a chance to watch the first half before work today, and am not really looking forward to the second...but ugh. We're so done unless we can beat Italy, which on this form, not a chance. The U.S. actually reminded me a bit of Iran (Oh The Irony!) - talented players who just didn't seem to 'get it' at this level. There was also a glaring difference in the quality of the midfielders - Nedved and Rosicky moved all over the filed, finding space to make plays. With Reyna largely subdued, we didn't have that. Additionally, at this stage of his career, he's not the box-to-box player he once was. The player best suited to the role is probably Donanvan, and considering his lack of scoring recently, we probably don't lose much by dropping him into midfield.
Alternatively, after I watch the second half tonight I may just declare it hopeless.
