Brash but brilliant.
They can attack in waves, from the Rapinoe-Morgan-Heath front line to Lavelle in midfield and back to overlapping backs.
If they could give the Golden Ball to a unit, it should be given to the US midfield and defense, which has been stifling. The “expected goals” stat may have favored France and England in those games, but that’s misleading — the USA had it in control most of the time. Final score 2-0.
And today, despite strong Dutch resistance, the USA were a level above. Only strong goalkeeping kept it scoreless at the half.
The US are a team worth celebrating. Enjoy.
