Calm Down, if you haven't noticed, the USA soccer team is not actually that good. I think they are overrated a lot. They're OK but meh. Costa Rica are actually a decent side, just because they didn't qualify for the world cup, dosen't mean they're rubbish. They had to finish in the top 3 of a group that contained Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. How hard is that? Anyway, I knew an upset was on the cards imo...
USA is a pretty good team. They're not as good as stuff like Spain, Netherlands, Germany, Portugal, Brazil, and Mexico but USA is still a good team. If they sucked, they wouldn't have made the round of 16 in the last world cup and they wouldn't have made the finals of the Gold Cup. I think the problem in this game was their finishing was worse than in most games and, like what Landon Donovan said in a post game interview:
"We slept on that one play that produced the goal"
But Costa Rica isn't a bad team either. USA just needs to elarn from their mistakes and be more accurate when finishing and they'll do well against belgium. According to goal.com, 47% of fans predict a 2-1 result with the USA beating Belgium, so I hope they're right. This is my projected starting line up for the USA-Belgium game tomorrow.
Michael Orozco Fiscal
Jose Francisco Torres
I doubt i'm right but with this line up as long as they dont make any stupid mistakes they should be fine against Belgium
Also can't wait for Ghana vs. Brazil
