we wont know until they play Sweden what the team really looks like. US will probably win Sunday by like 6-0 too. However, they were the only team among the favorites(US, Germany, France, England, Brazil) to truly destroy their opponents, which is encouraging.
Alexi and the other guy sort of went at it after the match. Alexi saying he was fine with the running up of the score. Thats always been the way i was taught. Just destroy what is put in front of you.
i can agree when it is pros vs pros or amateurs vs amateurs. However, this was Pros vs Amateurs. At the same time it can be just as disrespectful to take it easy on them. Kind of a double-edged sword.
I dont have a problem with the team using them as batting practice so to speak. I dont mind the scoring. Its the celebrations. Thats what really annoyed me. Act like you have been there before and you will be there again. Thats what Tomlinson used to say. And why he would simply hand the ball to the refs when he scored.
I wouldnt be surprised if we were humbled this WC. The universe works in mysterious ways.
