Amazing US Performance
If the result was a bit of a letdown, that's only because the caliber of play throughout the US' matchup with Portugal was so high. We looked awesome. Like a real world-cup-contender level team. We moved the ball well, we anticipated player movement well, good touch, good ideas, good control.
The heartbreaking goal from a lackluster and fairly pathetic Portugal side in the closing moments of time was hard to swallow. Hard to even believe. And it complicates getting out of group play. But, the upside--seeing a US side play this well on this stage--far outweights the negative.
Come on Yanks!!!
