We lacked creativity. I'm sure I don't have to tell anyone that, but it has to be said. We've been hearing nothing but praise for Graham Zusi and Brad Davis for months/years now, and, in fairness, they deserve it. They're good players who've done well with their club teams. However, they're probably not the guys we should turn to if we're looking to play progressive, proactive, attacking football. These guys provide excellent service and crossing, yes, but if we're going to play the aformentioned style, we need more than just good ball strikers and good crossers. We need genuinely creative, cultered ball players who know how to poke holes in any defense combined with the appropriate amount of directness. This is why we may not be done with Benny Feilhaber, Landon Donovan, and Stuart Holden, why Michael Bradley is such a vital part of this team, and why it's so perplexing that Mikkel Diskerud couldn't even manage a substitutes appearance in a game that could have used his attacking verve. All of the above guys show intelligence in their ball-playing and ball movement that is key to an attacking side. Josh Gatt was a welcome entry in the second half. He needs to become more disciplined, that's for sure, but his pace and dribbling from the left flank was at least asking questions of Canada's players. Played on his opposite foot, he received the ball wide and would cut inside, drawing the Canadian central midfield out of shape at times and making room for the U.S. midfield to advance past. However, the passes he played after dribbling past Canadian players usually either wasn't right, or never came at all. Still, he's a prospect that needs to stay in Klinsmann's scope, and offers the direct style of play that is also key to have should you wish to play with more possession. Overall, I think Juergen's player selection was quite off, and didn't really make much sense.
