Except for a few flubs, I though Ream played OK. Let's remember the quality of the team he faced. I thought the U.S. played tentative and apprehensive. They never took it to the Brazilians. The game was over, lost, before it began. No courage. Not on this night anyway. I stayed up to watch the first half of the Argentina-Mexico game. Argentina seemed to have more talent on the pitch than Brazil showed in the earlier game. But Argentina was sleepwalking through most of the first half. I wasn't particularly impressed with Mexico, but they got up on Brazil early. It is my firmest belief that Brazil did a bit of diving against the U.S. to get a few PKs. Throwing themselves into the defender for a call. It appeared to rattle the Americans. Some of the contact were legit fouls, but some of it was just diving. The U.S. was missing a bunch of key players, so I don't think this foreshadows a bad result in the must-win qualifying game coming up against Mexico. Must say, the grass sod they laid on top of the the surface was bunching, and causing players to slide and lose balance. A black eye to those who staged the friendly.
