I caught about 20 minutes of the game. And granted my comparisons are the EPL as well as the most recent Champions League games. But the US team looked awful. They didn't control the ball well, they didn't possess the ball well, they didn't pass the ball well, they didn't move well without the ball. It looked like the first touch on a lot of the balls were poor and caused a loss of possession. Hopefully it will get better when they play more and get some of their better players in the lineup, but when guys like Altidore and Dempsey fail to make an impact your going to have problems.
