Gooch is too cumbersome and slow to play against sides like that. He can hold his own against larger teams, but not the small and quick variety.
~Marcelo was the best player on the pitch. He rendered Donovan totally ineffective along with everyone else. He was also very dangerous coming forward.
~Michael Bradley is clearly the most creative player on the US squad. He has been for quite some time IMO.
~What a huge upgrade at LB to go from Bornstein to Fabian Johnson. A weakness has become a strength.
~Hercules Gomez belongs in the rotation up top.
~The official, although terrible in the first half, was much better in the 2nd half. He was on the screen the entire first 45. The second half you could hardly notice him, as it should be.
