It wasn’t a great start for the US as they conceded an early goal in the 4th minute when a simple ball fell to Oalex Anderson who was allowed to walk into the box with the ball and slotted the ball past Brad Guzan. The US responded in the 10th minute when DeAndre Yedlin got to the endline and cut back the ball to Bobby Wood who placed a header nicely to the far post. The US took the lead on a free kick when Fabian Johnson had his kick deflected leaving the goalkeeper helpless to stop the ball. The US quickly doubled their lead when Jermaine Jones flicked on a corner that Jozy Altidore headed in. It was nearly a carbon copy for the fourth goal when Geoff Cameron finished off a flicked on header from Wood. Gyasi Zardes added the fifth when Altidore slotted him into the box where he slid his shot under the goalie. The last goal came from Altidore who held the ball up well turned a fired a shot that was again deflected into the corner.
Here are my player ratings.
He couldn’t do anything on the goal but was otherwise not involved.
He was lackadaisical on the goal but otherwise he did very well
He was not challenged defensively, but did well placing his header for the goal.
He had two headed chances that were close, but otherwise had a quiet defensive game.
He wasn’t challenged defensively, but was solid although he didn’t really do much going forward despite the domination in possession.
He did well combining in attack in the second half and he had a nice finish.
It was a quiet game for him, but he didn’t need to do much in the game.
Similar to Bradley in that he did what was needed, but nothing particularly flashy.
His free kicks were superb and it was clear he adds dynamism to the midfield. Seeing his impact there makes finding suitable fullbacks all the more important.
His finish was superb and he was dynamic leading the line. He also got an assist on Cameron’s goal.
It was good for him to score two goals and his hold-up play was solid.
He seemed a bit cautious but showed some flashes when he was able to find some space.
He didn’t do anything badly, but he wasn’t even challenged defensively.
He had some moments and was close to getting in on goal, but otherwise was busy but not much to go on for a rating.
