      SIX!!!

      Eduardo Vargas has 4! He was sensational last year and he's again their main man.

      Is that the Eduardo Vargas that played for QPR? Always thought he and his Chilean mate Isla were very good players and wasted at OPR.

      Hey I might be a loser, but at least I've never lost to Chile 7-0 :lmao:

      An embarrassment that couldn't have happened to a classier fan base with their homophobic chants and throwing of objects onto the field.

      Freaking Klinsmann playing Wondolowski. Should have just played Dempsey up top and added a 5th mid. No fight in this team right now, pathetic.

      I'd have gone with Zardes up top and thrown Nagbe into midfield. Zardes for his complete lack of a touch is at least energetic and has pace -- which is exactly what Bobby Wood had that was causing so much problems for the other teams.

      Forgot about Nagbe to be honest but I agree, anyone better than Wondo. He's not ever shown that he is up for big games. It's like Klinsmann wants to be fired.

      Wondo does alright in MLS.... but that's MLS. He's consistently proven himself to be crap at the international level. No reason for him to make the squad and not Morris. (Not that Morris is spectacular either, but at least he's energetic.)

      I'm really not impressed by Beckerman or Bradley either. Both are serial turnover artists and Bradley while he occasionally makes a big play, usually just wanders around trying to look busy.

      Yeah, they're hardly doing anything right.

      As much as it sucks to get this beatdown, it's also very deserved when you look at the respective qualities of each team. There is a mammoth gulf in talent.

      Klinsmann might not be a good coach, but until the ENTIRE system changes -- from 5-year-olds on up -- there will always be a noticeable gulf between the U.S. and top tier international teams. Firing a manager isn't going to change that. Gotta look at the big picture. It's going to take an entire generation of changes.

      Still early days in your football journey. Copa America semi should be celebrated IMO. Not many teams could live with Messi on form.

      to be fair guzan can't be blamed for last night, messi's free kick would have beaten better goalies than baldy brad.

      He should have claimed the ball on the first goal, he hesitated. And yes, Messi's free kick was superb.

      Yeah I don't mind losing that, to be honest. We just hope to one day get to a point where we celebrate losing in a semifinal. But that'll take maybe 20 years or so.

      Yep, I agree on this. Also, with a stronger keeper at the back, your defence will always play with a lot more authority and confidence. If I had Guzan at the back.. f**k me, I would sh*t myself.

      Anyway, didn't know Tim Howard was still playing, thought he retired :O

      Haven't seen much of the tournament, thought the US did very well getting to the semi's but just outclassed by a superior Argie team. That free-kick by Messi was superb.
      .
      Saw a piece on CNN were they were talking to some US fans who were complaining about the pricing of tickets for the tournament.
