USA vs Belgium | 1-2

Come on!

2-1 in extra time?!? Why does the dramatic stuff always have to happen to the US? We figured out how to beat Ghana, almost beat Portugal, and have a not-so-bad defensive performance against Germany, and we couldn’t find a way to win against silly Belgium that in my opinion, didn’t have the best group performance? It’s kind of stupid. 

Only the defense had a good game. Timmy Howard, Geoff Cameron (Even though he was in the midfield most of the game), DeAndre Yedlin played like he was sonic/young Ronaldo/Gimme some sugar. And DeMarcus Beasley didn’t have the worst game either. But, the two best defenders were unarguably Omar Gonzalez and Matt Besler. They probably were the best players on the field, besides legandary Timothy Matthew Howard. If Iker Casillas was in goal, it would’ve been about 7-1. 

"Get the ball, Dempsey!!!"        

That was what I was screaming about the entire game. I had not ever seen Dempsey be so lazy in my life. Just get the ball! He could’ve scored once if he wasn’t being lazy. 

Enough of making fun of the USA. It happens to every team in the world. We got out of the “group of death”. S’all good. And by the looks of 2018, we have a strong chance with Julian Green (with his first touch in the World Cup becoming a goal. That always means something.) Jozy Altidore is young, Michael Bradley, Omar Gonzalez, DeAndre Yedlin, Fabian Johnson, Will Trapp, Gedion Zelalem, and plenty more young stars. So have some confidence.
