USA are pretty amazing they beat Spain in the confederations cup, almsot beat Brazil in the final and now play 1-1 against Argentina!!
No doubt the u.s. have gotten better compared to ten years ago but being dominated by Argentina who looked like they were playing at half there potential shows there far from amazing.
Yep, US played well as they were able to shut out Messi. Tickets were sold out too MOTM: Howard
completely forgot about this match last night and only caught the last 10 minutes of it. They defended well and gave Argentina some scares on the counter. Gonna go watch it on my 360 now to see how the first half went, 'cuz I heard that Argentina was on fire. The US still holds the attendance record for the World Cup. So it's not that they don't care about football, they just need some real quality to watch. MLS has improved greatly over the past 3 years and clubs are now starting to fill their stadiums. Seattle Sounders had more people in their stadium than your typical Serie A club would when they played Houston Dynamo on Friday.
Yeah, it was pretty crowded over there, as I live only 20 minutes away from the stadium.
Howard is an amazing keeper america are lucky with a keeper like that.
Did Messi do anything in this match or did he put his invincible coat on?
Messi was probably the best one out of the Argentina squad. Argentina does not service Messi as well as Barca so he doesn't score as often
USA are growing and growing they might have a shot at a world cup someday.
I believe so my self. I live in the U.S. and I have seen a tremendous growth in their abilities to play and in how the fanbase is responding. Once more and more people start enjoying soccer here and actually begin to play and have their kids grow up with it. They (the U.S.) will be an unstopable force in soccer.
The U.S. has a good team but seriously they have a lot of work to do before they get close at winning a world cup. If people want to see a massive rise in skill in the united states then they need to add the promotion/relegation rule. That alone would enhance the level of competition and increase individual players' skill overall in each league. Tell then the MLS is still a joke.sorry.
God, I hate when actual football nations don't just run over USA, like they should be able too. I'm sure they're considering it an opportunity to be experimentive, but the United States shouldn't get any false hopes. I'm not going to say that USA is a bad football team though. They're solid in defence (and have a great keeper) and potentially dangerous on counter attacks. Also it's good to see USA becoming a good football team. Hopes rise for one time seeing football being the number 1 sport in every country on earth! (actual football mind you)
The players in the American team aren't as talented as their South American and European counterparts but they sure play their heart out and give a 110% effort on the field. I think that's why they don't get destroyed by every team that has more individually gifted players like Argentina, Spain, or Brazil.
Yeah, I agree. They give their all in matches where others don't, and they play 4-5-1 with a solid defence. Also, this match they had their fair amount of luck.
