Because Shea's ahead of him for now on the pecking order. Although it seems your team strategy of rotating guys was a hell of a lot better than ours.
dos santos, the guy who hasnt played at a club level like in 2 years?
It was a poor performance, but the individual weaknesses exposed by Canada weren't all that surprising. It's a limited team.
My game ratings:
GK Hamid- 4: He failed miserably on the first goal and never seemed to be that steady back there.
D Villafana- 5: Didn't do much at all going forward, but he didn't exactly get overrun.
D Kitchen- 5: It was no secret that he lacked physically- and this weakness was evident yet again today. He could've done more to mix up the distribution from the back. But he did hold a good line throughout.
D Opara- 3: Showed well again when attacking plays in front of him, but was an absolute horror-show otherwise. Lost his mark in the box twice- both instances leading to goals. And his foot-skills are quite frankly well below this level.
D Valentin- 4: Had trouble with Canada's pace up front never once did anything threatening with the ball at his feet.
M Jeffrey- 4: Didn't show enough for passes to help Mix out and never tried to do anything creative. Lost the ball too many times esp. for the safe style he was playing and was nothing more than pedestrian in defense.
M Diskerud- 4: Waif-like and bothered throughout. He is the key to this team and Canada took him out. Poor marking on the second goal.
M Corona- 5: Dangerous once again with the ball at his feet but he couldn't find the ball enough.
M Shea- 5: He worked hard and did the right thing from the neck-up (including the saved glancing header), but the lack of final product spoiled his considerable effort yet again.
M Adu- 5: Poorly deployed on the right flank, but still wasn't able to dictate things when he dropped deep and tucked inside. His set pieces provided the U.S. with its best opportunities on the day.
F Bunbury- 5: Worked hard but certainly didn't add much at all.
M Gyau- 5: Made dangerous runs but shows no ability to finish any of them. Runs himself out of trouble and then into trouble again in the same move.
F Boyd- 4: He was even worse than Bunbury. Can barely remember him getting on the ball.
M Okugo- 5: Caught flat-footed on his yellow and couldn't turn the tide when he replaced a ragged Jeffrey.
And 100% American, and still pretty slow.

Passage to semis not automatic in CONCACAF for favorites. 4 years ago, Mexico finished third behind Guatemala & Canada
It's less truth an more xenophobia which is a step away from racism. Linking failures to heritage and ethnic background says more about what conclusions you derive based on the same facts open-minded people are presented with. It's not the Truth, it's your xenophobic opinion.
Huh? Are you totally oblivious? All those guys I named play in Europe. Their clubs wouldn't release them, so there is nothing to do. This isn't an official FIFA date so they are not obligated to release the players. These European clubs have screwed the USA over though. Chandler's club quite often says that he is injured, and can't play for the USMNT, yet he plays without any injury the next game for his team. Morales wasn't even on the 18 man roster for today's Hertha Berlin game, but yet he is so important to the team, and the coach of AZ Alkmaar has a personal vendetta against Jozy and refuses to give him a start when everyone is healthy, but yet he is so important to Alkmaar. The USA could have done a better job of getting some players released, but these european teams are screwing the USA over.
Im' anti-xenephobe as they come and the guy is right, well, this what i took from it:
No matter where the players come from, we are still going to struggle.
Too generous to our defenders.
hamid - 3 (at fault on first, but Opara did him NO favors)
opara - 3 (caught out repeatedly, and passing was horrid today)
kitchen - 4 (didn't help out)
valentin - 4 (couldn't pass to a man in white to save his life)
adu - 5 (meh)
diskerud - 5 (meh)
shea - 4 (harsher grade. You get called up to the senior side, you should be better than this.)
villafana - 6.5 (only dude that looked like he had a clue today)
bunbury - 1 (he played?)
corona - 5 (meh)
jeffrey - 4
okugo - 3
gyau - 6
boyd - 3
and Dustin Correa is sooo sooo good! I mean Juventus were monitoring him!
lmfao naive Agudelo fan
Boyd was terrible? You need to open your eyes.
I thought Opara was offside, too.
Yeah, he was so great. That is why he did completely nothing.
The replay showed that he wasn't.
Opara was offside.
well that's not very sportsmanlike, chump.
The replay I saw showed there were 3 players including opara that were offside.
I assumed he was talking about the second. Play was dead on first like you said.
I am about to $hit my pants just thinking of that oh so talented canadian team. Get lost dude.
Pot, meet kettle.
Your one liner based on this game is a demonstration of your first statement.
Don't worry, our senior team will be seeing yours in June. I don't expect that team to *hit the bed. But you never know what happens.
Playing Canada this year? You mean when we curb stomp your country at just about every single sport known to man in the Olympics? Troll, please.
The trolls are officially out tonight!
