What bothered me most about this game and what I saw that remained constant from the world cup, were the tactics (or lack of tactics)-employed by the US. The constant banging of the ball up the field, the lack of creative play in the final third. The reliance on set pieces to score. The issue isn't the hiring of a new coach. Its the need for this team to develop a higher degree of tactical intelligence akin and hopefully eventually superior to the Germany's of the World.
