That is a freacky scary Spanish squad!
It might be fun if the Spaniards take it easy and the USA puts it all in, but, if the “Spanish Armada” gets serious it might be painful to watch for the hometeam fans.
We will see. Awesome anyway!!!!
We get a result if we get an early goal. Otherwise this thing could degenerate into a mess as I can’t see Bradley playing his starters very long.
