The United States finished off their January camp with a 2-0 victory over Korea Republic in Los Angeles. Chris Wondolowski scored both goals showing the poaching instincts he has at the MLS level. The US defense had some scary moments including an early corner kick that looked very close to crossing the line before Nick Rimando saved it. Here are may ratings for the game.
He actually had to make a number of saves including an early chance off a corner kick and some well struck long shots.
He had a bad giveaway in the first half and was generally subdued in attack. He looks serviceable if needed, but it should not take much take his right back spot.
He made a lot of timely clearances and dealt with the set pieces that Korea tried to put into the box.
He had a loose pass in the first half, but defended well when he needed to intervene.
It was an effective performance. His versatility to play anywhere on the backline makes him an intriguing option as a squad player at the World Cup.
It was a solid game, he was instrumental in both goals and did well defensively. Player of the game for me.
He was steady as usual. There were some passages of play where he and Diskerud were left scrambling, but a solid performance.
He was solid and has shown better consistency of late. It would have been nice to see him a little more involved in the attack.
He made a good far post run to setup the first goal and had some solid moments. He was loose with the ball in the second half leading to a few chances.
He made smart passes and good runs and involved in the setup for the second goal, but faded as the game wore on.
By far his best performance for the US. He took his chances and came close to setting up Donovan for a tap-in. Probably still on the outside looking in, but has himself at least in the conversation.
He had solid hold-up play but never got free behind the defense for any clear chances.
He did well helping out with set pieces and was calm defending in the back.
He distributed the ball well trying to get it out to the wings.
He did not have to during his time, but for a debuting defender that is probably good.
He showed good skill on the ball in tight spaces.
