Acosta had a good summer.

I believe Dempsey said none of the 7 guys who started this game and didn't start the previous game showed any reason to start them.

Berhalter taking a lot of heat from things I read about this one. Seems like he got overconfident in our team/himself. Rotation is important with three games in a week, and all the games these guys play. But 7 changes is a lot. On the other hand, maybe he just figured winning the two games at home is higher priority than maybe sinking a lot of "resources" into winning at Panama, which was never going to be easy, especially with Reyna and Pulisic out.

People get upset with our performances sometime. And in some regards it is justified. But I think people also sometimes fail to realize CONCACAF as a whole is improving and going to play at these Central American countries is never easy. Even worse now that they are getting better.

Also, I didn't get to watch much of the game but McKenzie looked awful in the little bit I did see. And the marking on their goal was atrocious. Guy completely umarked on the front post with three guys standing around him.
