England U-21s 1, U.S. U-23s 0: Match Highlights

U.S. U-23s England U-21s 2015




  1. Just from these highlights the US back line did not look very good. Cropper looked good and made some good saves to keep them in the game.I wonder how many of these players will play in qualifying.

    • Sure. Does occur though that as a fanbase we tend to look only to the backline when speaking/critiquing defense. The Peru game is an illustration that it takes all 11. That when you sit back, absorb, give acres of space, it’s asking a whole lot of a backline and it’s sure to look vulnerable. When you pressure up high, all players defend, cut off passing lanes and hold the ball more…….. suddenly things look different.
