Your USMNT Line-up

Pretty much what I expected, though I fail to see the benefit in sticking your main wide crosser on his off wing.

get what you are saying greg, but i bet they will shift wings early and often. plus i bet both will be pinching in as deuce is alone so not tons of targets. i would be looking for driving runs to the touch line and laying the ball back to the central mids making late runs into the box.

I do not want them pinching in, especially not Zusi. They need to be out wide to help with the Portugal wingers, pinching to the middle gives them much longer chases.

And the thing about switching wings is really only good when the wing set-up you have is not working. It is a very strange thing to me.

Setting Zusi up for a bad half so wunder-sub Green can come in!

Zusi's first touch is not international quality. Nor is Zusi, but hey, a point!

What am I missing with regards to Bradley? He's getting absolutely slaughtered online.

He should have had a goal, and he had a bad give away late (although I'd argue the defense should have dealt with the break). Other than that, he held the ball well, was (mostly) precises in passing, had some great long balls, and played well defensively. I'm sure he's killing himself right now for his role in the equalizer, but we wouldn't have been at 2-1 without him.

I have no idea. Some people are getting veeeery emotional during this Cup.
