17-1

 

There’s not a lot to do as a forward when the opponent is tormenting your back four, outshooting your side by 17-1.

Job done.

I'm still not convinced the team has put their troubles behind them. If the proper call was made, would we talking about how well the back four prepared / played at the Estadio Azteca?

Or, would we be curious as to the second-half subs made by Klinsmann?

A tough transition in a tough qualifying round.
