Drink the Kool-Aid-Arena states match unlike WC match
“Well, I think you have to look at the game. We have players that will create chances. I don’t think you will see a game in the World Cup that will look like this one tonight. It wasn’t good tonight, but we are a little leg weary, we’re over-trained. We pushed them a little hard.” “Our team looked a little tired at times and I thought our passing was poor tonight. (We had) an inability to cross the ball. Tough to break down the Moroccan team that got 8, 9, 10 players behind the ball the whole game. Give them a lot of credit. They took their chance well. We didn’t do a good job creating chances, our last pass was poor, and our crossing was poor tonight. After 90 some-odd minutes, that is the difference in the game.” So the US lost because Morocco did not play in WC fashion? McBride comments: On Arena’s comment that you are “unlikely to see a game like this in the World Cup”:“You probably aren’t going to have team’s sitting back and hoping they are going to get a breakaway. But again, as soccer goes you sort of how to figure out a way to win the game, and we probably didn’t do that well enough.” Teams will always push forward even if ahead or only needing a draw? On what the team can learn from a game like this:“It shows us something. There is always something you can take from this game and learn from it and hopefully make us better.” What is it Brian?
