The entire squad played flat the entire first half

I couldn't watch the second half, so I don't know what changed, but I don't think this game was bad coaching. There was an obvious penalty on us that wasn't called so it could easily have been 3-0 at the end of the first half. We played like cow poop. Same team that embarrassed Panama 4-0 a few days earlier.

Everyone who has played a team sport has had games/matches where the team just was flat. Had the game been in a packed stadium I think it would have gone better for us. That there was zero crowd emotion prevented us from waking up.

The field was garbage - the ball died every time it hit the ground, it seemed, which limited breakaways, but it didn't matter, both teams played on the same pitch.

We didn't deserve the WC bid. I don't blame Bruce. I don't know who is going to come in and do better.
