While I respect him, I disagree with his starting lineup. Bob Bradley pulled Ricardo Clark after only 30 minutes, essentially admitting that he got it wrong. Maurice Edu and Benny Feilhaber should be starting. They proved their worth against Algeria by possessing the ball well and controlling the midfield in conjunction with Dempsey and Donovan.
The goals were bad. Clark was dispossessed and Howard was completely out of position. The second goal was more of the same. When overtime hit, the U.S. abandoned the strategy that got them the first goal.
Tough ending to a fun tournament for the U.S.
Thoughts on the game?
