#1 rule in sports is play to win. Very bad move for the US. I'd blame the coaches for not teaching the youngsters right. You get what you deserve ... Germany. The tournament ends here for the US. I am predicting a 4-1 win for the Germans. No disrespect to NZ but you (the US) gotta push for a win. And, how could you lose to Uzbek (i mean no disrespect to Uzbek)? Perhaps, i had too much faith in US soccer where the senior side just got whipped by Mexico. I'll watch bowling from now on.

That was awful and embarassing by the kiwis. We played really well and have had a great tournament so far, (I'm so proud), but that display in The last fifteen minutes against the USA was shameful. We had the ability to win that game and finish first in the group but we kicked the ball around in the back four looking for a draw like a bunch of prats. The draw at FIFA gave us what we deserved ie third place behind the USA. I'm ashamed and don't want us to win our next game.

Well done NZ. Absolutely Amazing. Hope Jesse Edge is ok he's a much needed player. The Nz Goal keeper was exceptional. Go NZ.

"We understand that Mexican fans don’t support us. This is clear because we are rivals; it is totally normal. It is something that our players are learning to deal with,” USA coach Wilmer Cabrera.
