For all the hand-wringing about the defense, we had 0 goals against us at home in the Hex. That's the kind of stat I can be proud of. In 2009, we gave up goals to Honduras, El Salvador, and 2 to CR all in the first halves of hex home games we had to fight our way back into. Those early goals would become a theme, and doom us in the 2010 World Cup. In 2013, we gave up no goals at home despite a pretty shady defensive personnel situation throughout the hex. I feel like a corner has been turned and the coaching staff deserve a ton of credit for it.
