US Limp To Goalless Draw In Final Friendly Ahead Of November World Cup

In the ultimate movement of the staff ahead of the World Cup, the United States won 0-0 against Saudi Arabia in Murcia, Spain on Tuesday as Matt Turner performed well on the net as he played for the home team’s jersey .

The United States were likely to move into Qatar with momentum, but Gio Reyna left as a precaution after just 30 minutes of motion and another disappointing performance by Ricardo Pepi, leaving more problems than solutions. Christian Pulisic’s return is expected to bolster their offense in their 2-0 loss to Japan, although statistically there are 7 photos, 4 on the pitch. Not enough to win. Safe in Saudi Arabia. Arab.

Clever runs from Sergino Durst, Weston McKenney and Christian Pulisic started the game effectively, but outside the trio, the offense had nowhere to go can be found. Pepi couldn’t control his movement to stay in position or drop in at the end of a cross, while Dest’s passing potential was lacking on the right, with DeAndre Yedlin taking his place there.

After the game, Berhalter was pleased with the efficiency but not the execution, saying the timing was a struggle. With the staff juggling a lot of rotation, there wasn’t much time to put together his best lineup, apparently including Pepi’s problem of focusing on his running tips during the game. Key players such as Christian Pulisic, Tim Weah, Gio Reyna, Antonee Robinson and Yunus Musah have all lacked time in their first few global home games, so honestly their time is out, but it also shows how weak their lows are Yes. Only 55 days left until the World Cup.

The United States will then face Wales in their Group B opener on November 21 at 2pm ET.

Some takeaways from competitors are listed below:

Learn from mistakes, don’t dwell on them

With just two shots aimed at 180 minutes of football during this global break, you can’t ask for more efficiency from a national staff striker. However, there may still be time to step up before the World Cup against Wales kicks off in Qatar in November. If gamers like Christian Pulisic, Sergino Dest, and Luca de la Torre could use this camp as inspiration to get started and get a starting spot on their respective golf equipment, the problem could be completely different in a few months. Mixed for good and bad, the trio have played just 536 minutes for members and national teams this season, which is less than Tyler Adams has played for Leeds this season (540). Berhalter wants his best players to play in the minutes before the World Cup, as the run-up between the group’s training camp and kick-off against Wales won’t be enough time to rush a decision. This can only be achieved through the playing time they need to earn on their respective golf equipment.

Inventory drops to select depth

Looking at those two games, it turns out that the deep selection of the national staff isn’t enough when the regulars go down. When someone like Josh Sargent was named as Pepi’s replacement, there was depth in attack, but after the first trio in midfield, no one stood up. Berhalter has been reluctant to use Reyna and Aaronson in deeper positions, but he still hasn’t given Jordan Pefok a good chance as a backup to change the tempo in the Qatar direction. Participating in whether the staff will make it to the group stage is affordable when Berhalter’s plans rely on him acknowledging that he may not have rookies for the World Cup. The best managers can fix issues if their systems don’t work, but Berhalter has proven reluctant to make these shifts, and players won’t make those changes without him making them.

What is the difference between the stability of the midfield

While the attack was not a good one, the fortifications worked and stopped Saudi Arabia at key points. Aaron Longy and Walker Zimmerman were more reassured at the back, sure that the midfield would not be overtaken, while Dest and Yedlin also made crucial stops on the flanks. Acosta and Adams provide a security blanket for protection, but with that comes the additional downside that hinders the build-up of attacks. Staff were hoping Robinson would touch the Saudi defender rather than the American striker again soon with Yedlin’s cross, but he did the job in defence. It’s not fair, but it seems Berhardtler’s backline of Robinson, Ronty, Zimmerman and Durst is ready to open up three positions for the World Cup. Turner’s lead is goalkeeper, Ferreira’s is goalkeeper, and Tim Weah’s seemingly bonus position is right-wing.
