    This goal reminds me of the fourth and fifth Colombian goals. Sloppy play which Colombia speedily and ruthlessly exploited. Same with Brazil's goal.

    Seriously. He was about to face half of the entire U.S. team.

    Joao Gomes with a bad play letting Pulisic get ahead of him and then fouling. Should have been a PK but the ref said it was outside the box. Pulisic scored on the free-kick.

    Gotta say, that was really bad by Alisson though, letting a low kick get past him on that side.

    A prophetic post, @Ombak. The defense needs much improvement.

    Why take a shot from there, Raphinha? So many players near you.

    Rodrygo as well... what a waste.

    João Gomes is not doing well at all. Easily beaten and unable to decide whether to tackle or not since he's on a yellow.

    For a team that has had extra time to train together, some of these missed connections are extra frustrating. (On top of the defensive spaces.)

    First half is over.

    Very frustrating from Brazil again. Too much space between midfield and defense, allowing guys through easily. Especially Musah on their side, and João Gomes being beaten on our side.

    Some missed connections for us also, and a bit of lethargy at times, but there were good connections for a period there, including Raphinha doing the right thing to find Rodrygo on the goal.

    I don't think Dorival will change at the half, he might give them a few more minutes to play together, but I do expect Endrick on earlyish and maybe a midfield change with his introduction.

    I am all for giving a coach some time but I am not liking how this team plays. It so so disjointed and disorganized

    Smart thing to do might be just play on the counter and take advantage of Vinicius then .

    Come on, the guy has barely turned 18. He is a kid. Don't expect maturity. He's having fun.

    Douglas Luiz in for João Gomes at the half. That's the sub I expected (though I thought it might not be right away).

    This is the 2021 Olympic partnership in midfield, let's see if they look better together than they have on their own.

    Rodrygo earns a free-kick, and after a long time setting it up VAR only now calls the ref to potentially check for a red (probably for DOGSO?)

    But in the end the ref reverses it after determining the defender got the ball first.

    Very next play we play Rodrygo in but he has an awkward chance on a bouncing ball, tries to tip it in backwards and just misses.

    1-1 against a super shitty US side is sad.

    I'm really losing faith in this team to win anything.

    Dorival going 4-2-4 I guess...

    Endrick on for Bruno Guimarães
    Andreas for Paquetá
    Sávio for Raphinha

    Can't believe I'm saying this but Vini should have gone out for Raphinha.
