I worry less about Bradley and more about the finishing. Altidore creates that great chance then fluffed it. His bicycle attempt was never going to score but was woeful. Arriola squandered a lot including the chance he made picking Ochoa (this was maybe the hardest). Even Pulisic when he got 1 v 1 with the keeper was a wasted opportunity. If they want to play at the highest level with anything like their current talent level they’ll need to be clinical. I just don’t know where that is coming from right now
Edit: All that said, this was a positive tournament. They created enough to beat a weakened Mexico team and blooded a few players. It was progress
Bradley’s strengths were great work rate and vision / passing. It was great having a Beckerman or Jones cleaning up behind him.
His work rate has dropped and consequently he cant be in position to use his vision going forward.
The vision / anticipation has also diminished and so now we get more turnovers in our own half as well.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
