美国队在对阵墨西哥的比赛中有三件事非常糟糕

这一天从坏消息开始,明星中锋约翰布鲁克斯不能参加腹股沟问题的比赛,一旦球进入比赛,这个问题就会不断出现。

“kdsp”一旦墨西哥度过了与东道主的前15分钟,他们基本上就自由了。一个错误百出的序列把墨西哥推上了榜首,它从来没有变得更好。

让我们把这个问题解决掉:在这个阶段,墨西哥遥遥领先于美国。El Tri正处于黄金时代,而这一代人中的大多数正处于黄金时期。USMNT还很年轻,约翰布鲁克斯和泰勒亚当斯的受伤暴露了它的深度。

哈维埃尔南德斯在上周五的友谊赛中打入51粒国家队进球,创下了墨西哥国家队历史上进球最多的纪录。

他也进入了美国的18世纪,就像它是一个宁静的国家公园。

“Jesus”Tecatito”科罗娜绝对煮熟了18岁的塞尔吉诺·斯特,在他不受欢迎的左后卫位置上踢球,一个肉豆蔻和年轻的后卫没有足够的智慧去犯规墨西哥前锋。

阿伦·朗对这一举动反应迟缓,而威尔·特拉普并没有指出这三名球员中的任何一位。

韦斯顿-麦肯尼在这里是最大的错误,因为这位中场中锋被推到了球场的另一端,右边锋泰勒-博伊德在小豌豆头球攻门越过斯特芬的时候徒劳地跑了回来。“

非常贫穷。

美国的头号球员在整场比赛中都被墨西哥人盯上了,对于格雷格·伯豪特的队员们来说,他仍然是场上最危险的武器。他需要帮助。普利西奇有时太用力了,试图把自己的比赛排除在一些精彩的时刻之外。韦斯顿-麦肯尼的配合很好。

早些时候,普利西奇和左路的塞尔吉诺·斯特以一种激动人心的方式结合在一起,因为两名球员配合默契,球技流畅,天赋出众,足球智商超群。

普利西奇甚至要到9月18日才满21岁,所以看到他的发动机和发动机都装备精良,能与他更吸引人的化妆技巧相匹配,真是令人鼓舞。三分之二的中场球员在战术上辜负了贝哈尔特。在对阵瓜达多、埃雷拉和其他球员的比赛中,伯格·贝哈尔特打造三人勤奋中场的想法很有道理。不幸的是,只有他的一名球员在几分钟内完成了任务。正如上文所述,特拉普和麦肯尼在科罗娜的揭幕战中以惊人的方式让球队大失所成,但远不止于此。虽然麦肯尼和普里西奇、莫拉莱斯有过几次美好的结合,但这与我们在沙尔克球场看到的几周不同(很多时候他都穿着美国球衣)。

我不会对特拉普大加渲染,但如果有一个三人中场能让他表现出色的话,那就是麦肯尼和莫拉莱斯(尽管我们刚刚报道了前者休息的那个晚上)的两个吃哩者。

每个教练都有他最喜欢的球员,而博哈特在哥伦布执教特拉普多年,但在这一点上,很可笑的是,USMNT的老板继续让他首发(尤其是对阵前面提到的墨西哥中场)。这不是特拉普应该拒绝的。贝哈特应该注意到,特拉普现在甚至还不是美国职业足球大联盟前30名的中锋,而且知道这个体系并不代表一切。

也就是说,Berhalter没有选择Tyler Adams或Michael Bradley来代替他。让莫拉莱斯处理更深层次的谎言,让麦肯尼和塞巴斯蒂安·莱格特更先进,这也许是件好事,但老实说,特拉普比杰克逊·岳尔更安全。

莫拉莱斯在比赛中表现得很好,直到比赛破裂,他在墨西哥队第三粒入球前被洛扎诺(Chucky Lozano)刺穿,然后——就像我们给它下了个恶咒一样——他看起来在第90分钟时受了重伤。

The day began with bad news, with star center back John Brooks unable to play with a groin issue, and it just kept coming once the ball went into play.

Once Mexico weathered the first 15 minutes from the hosts, they were essentially home free. A mistake-riddled sequence put Mexico up top, and it never got better.

And let’s get this out of the way: Mexico is miles ahead of the United States at this stage. El Tri is in a Golden Generation, and most of that generation is in its prime. The USMNT is young, and its depth has been exposed by injuries to John Brooks and Tyler Adams.

Savvy El Tri punishes sensationally poor marking for opener

Javier Hernandez entered Friday’s friendly with 51 international goals, more than anyone in Mexican national team history.

He also entered the United States’ 18 like it was a serene national park.

Jesus “Tecatito” Corona absolutely cooked 18-year-old Sergino Dest, playing at his unfavored left back slot, with a nutmeg and the young back wasn’t wise enough to foul the Mexican attacker.

Aaron Long is slow to react to the move and Wil Trapp doesn’t mark any of the three players available to him.

Weston McKennie is most at fault here, as the center midfielder is pushed so far up the field that right winger Tyler Boyd is the one racing back in futility as Chicharito plants a header past Steffen.

Very poor.

Pulisic impresses (despite a little bit of pressing too hard)

The United States’ clear No. 1 player was hounded by Mexican markers all game and was still the most dangerous weapon on the field for Gregg Berhalter’s men.

He needs help. Pulisic pressed too hard at times, trying to take the game himself aside from a few bright moments. There was a good combination play with Weston McKennie in the mix.

Early on, Pulisic combined with Sergino Dest on the left in a sensational way, as both players mesh well with smooth ball skills, excellent flair, and exceptional soccer IQ going forward (They were both absolutely worked by Tecatito in the build up to the goal).

Pulisic doesn’t even turn 21 until Sept. 18, so it’s inspiring to see that his motor and engine are both well-equipped to match his more cosmetically appealing skills.

Two-thirds of midfield trio fails Berhalter

Tactically, Gregg Berhalter’s idea of playing a three-man industrious midfield against Andres Guardado, Hector Herrera, and crew made a lot of sense. Unfortunately, only one of his players delivered the goods for more than a few moments.

As covered above, Trapp and McKennie failed the team in sensational fashion on Corona’s opener, but it was much more than that. While McKennie had a couple of nice moments combining with Pulisic and Morales, but wasn’t close to what we see most weeks at Schalke (and many times in his a U.S. shirt).

I’m not going to pile on Trapp, but if ever there was a three-man midfield to make him perform well, it was alongside two mile-eaters in McKennie and Morales (though we just covered the former’s off night).

Every coach has his favorites and Berhalter coached Trapp for years at Columbus, but at this point it’s fairly comical that the USMNT boss continues to start him (especially against the aforementioned Mexican midfield). It’s not up to Trapp to turn down a cap. It is on Berhalter to note that Trapp isn’t even a Top 30 center midfielder in MLS right now, and knowing the system isn’t everything.

That said, Berhalter did not have the option of selecting Tyler Adams or Michael Bradley in his place. It might’ve been nice to ask Morales to handle the deeper lying stuff and use McKennie and Sebastian Lletget more advanced, but honestly Trapp over Jackson Yueill was a safer move.

Morales was mostly good until the game fell apart and he was sauteed by Chucky Lozano in the run-up to Mexico’s third goal, and then — as if we jinxed it — he looks to have suffered a serious injury in the 90th minute.
