This game was a joke. The US was obliterated. There was never a doubt in my mind that Brasil would win. Brasil is the best in the world. Mexico should be here instead of the US. The US should not and will not qualify for the World Cup. Brasil will win both the Confed Cup and the World Cup. P.S. Ronaldinho should start or at least play. Ronaldinho = best

Sorry, it's obvious that the US is still several levels below teams like Italy and Brasil. and neither the US nor anyone else in CONCACAF can compete. This will remain the case until our best athletes enter soccer rather than the traditional America sports. Maybe we can have some luck against Egypt and go out with a win. As to coaching, Bradley hasn't got much to work with, but hasn't managed to get them to perform above level like a great coach should. If we could get Hiddink after WC that would be interesting... though how many more miracles can he produce?
