Glass half empty:
Pure dumb luck to beat Ghana who totally outplayed the US.
Blew a win against Portugal with shoddy passing and defense.
Totally owned by Germany, had nothing going offensively.
Glass half full:
Beat an underrated Ghana squad that tied Germany.
Tied Portugal and kept Ronaldo scoreless.
Gritty defense in pouring rain to only lose by one against one of the tournaments favorites.
I dunno. We made it to the knockout stage and Italy, Spain, England, and Portugal didn’t.
Gonna need to start scoring some goals again though.
Next up: Belgium. I think we can beat Belgium.
Another random thought: Would Landon Donovan have made a difference in any of these games? I’m thinking no.
