All 4 goals originated from a set-piece?
These set pieces are mad. Everything coming off.
Not necessarily a good thing that we can only score from set-pieces.
I’m thinking that last goal was offside. Looked like a US player jumped out of the way of the shot and most refs would consider that to be “involved” in the play from an offside position
3 of those goals were a tad fortunate and you could argue whether the 4th should have counted. Either way 4-0 is somewhat fair for the way the half was played
Credit to them for the practice time spent perfecting them. Too few teams do that in my opinion
Hopefully Busio grows physically (at this age you never know) so he can be a striker. His instincts and skill there are his strength atm.
All the goals weren't directly off set pieces, and it's not like they weren't generating chances otherwise, Fuentes and Busio just fluffed their lines. The long distance shooting technique warrants praise beyond what is smoke and mirrors.
Of course tough to evaluate against this competition. De Vries bombed against not so naive defenders but today is breaking down minnows. Could have been nervous or a product of the opponent. He's not the only one who can take on players anyway. Of course that's Reyna's asset.
I like some of the opponent independent displays from Saldana. He's picking out those diagonal long balls pretty quickly. From being a regular at lower levels, to praise he received there, to highlights, to this; I'm confused he's not more highly rated.
Everyone looking good against a really poor opponent. I'll take it, and am having fun with it. Its just very hard to judge players that have so much time and space.
Tyler Freeman on for Busio to start the second half
Barbados score a spectacular own goal after some decent play by Fuentes and De Vries on the right.
5-0 US 47'
Yikes, brutal own goal makes it 5
Fuentes feeling it right now
woooo a striker scores
Kobe Hernandez plays a long ball over the top to AOC who controls and finishes
6-0 US 50'
Barbados player trying to keep the ball in plays it off of Scally's right arm which was out for a PK.
Odunze goes the wrong way and Barbados convert.
6-1 US 54'
Was that a handball? Seems like the réf wanted to make Barbados feel a little better about themselves.
Mauricio Cuevas on for Leyva in the 54'
Dumb PK to give up, but it won’t matter in the scheme of things.
Penalty for Barbados off of a handball
Whelp US teams always give up one to a minnow.
Scally always has one or two defensive brain farts a game.
He stuck his hand out.
