I'm seeing a team that's letting the US control the game and tire themselves out but defending well in the box and playing to counterstrike. And it's working so far.

Just because you disagree doesn't make me a troll.


Yeah.. they really wanted pulisic 1v1 with the keeper 2 mins in. If we could finish our chances its 2-2. Go cry into your el tri flag.


That's a silly argument, if NED wins their three finals appearances they have three titles…instead

The halftime speech is simple.

Dutch had two chances and buried them. Both chances were caused by our mistakes. The Dutch didn't do any special. First goal caused by Adams quitting on play. Second goal was caused by Dest falling asleep.

We are going to keep attacking the left side of Dutch defense. They are really slow over there.

We don't need to score 2 goals in first minute.

Just get a goal in first thirty minutes. 2-1 with 15 minutes left. We are young and hungry. We'll tie it.

The missed Pulisic big chance changed this game. It allowed NED to deploy the strategy of defending deep and countering which has worked.

This is also where the US lack of depth really hurts. Guys like MMA and Dest are just out of gas. Those counters could have been marked better otherwise.

We played ourselves into the game on the attack the last 15 minutes, lets see if we can carry it forward

Stop talking about L Tri. Who cares if he's a Mexico fan. This is a USMNT thread. Keep it on topic please.

if we can make it a 1 goal game in the first 15 minutes, that would be excellent

Good to see the US start the half turning the ball over when not being challenged.

Weird. I have it on good authority that the Netherlands were in complete control.

I don't think they've played great. But most of the struggles are because of Dutch tactics.

I dont like REyna up top, because we need to be getting him on the ball as much as possible

We put a better shot on our goal than theirs.

Yea my main concern has really just been that I think they both look dead tired so far

What an idiotic response. His point was that NED was letting us do everything we did. When in reality we created good chances and didn't finish. We've been dangerous.

Mckennie has to give that ball to Reyna on his left in space instead of working it wide for a cross from Weah
