4-1 US in the 66th ... Hat trick for Donovan.
"The players make the manager, it's never the other way." - Sparky Anderson
5-1 now. Scotland looks utterly defeated. Donovan is having an amazing game.
This is the best the Nats have looked in a long time. The inventiveness in the final third is probably the best it has ever been for the USMNT now with Klinsmann dictating strategy.
The effect he has had on how this team plays is absolutely breathtaking. Such a stark comparison to the Robobob era, Klinsmann is going to maximize this team's capability.
Brazil is going to be a real test. They are bringing in a young squad, 20 of their players are Olympic eligible. In other words, these are highly talented young players who play in top leagues around the world who will be playing balls-out to try to carve out a spot for themselves on the full national side.
I wonder if the US will try to play the same way they played against Scotland... they may need to pull back a little bit more, will be interesting to see Klinsi's strategy vs. what they did versus the Scots.
Chicago should never host another USMNT match again. Last one there I think the crowd was 70% Honduras fans, 20% US fans, 10% empty seats
I am not a soccer guy, but I will watch the national team because I love my country and want to be better than everyone else. I will be tuning in in the next few minutes, hopefully it goes as well as last week did (I know, huge difference in competition..... but I can HOPE it happens).
