That's not Arena's style. The US will attack. But the defense is suspect.Figo Rules said:The Americans only chance is to pack the defense with 11 men behind the ball and hold on foe dear life
Even with this strategy, we will score 30 minutes into the game, and go on to a 3-0 victory.
Just as I think you are underestimating the US. After all, I was there when Kasey Keller single handedly (al be it with a bit of help from Preki) beat a pretty strong Brazilian team a few years ago here in LA. Ramario even said that was the greatest goalie performance he'd ever seen. I think you guys will be very surprised if you are baseing your entire opinion of the US on their performance 4 years ago. This is a very different team with a very different coach.Figo Rules said:I am PZ.....
Whatever Arena's "style"; the Portuguese have brought much better teams to their knees, forcing them to defend heavily and hope to hit on the counter.
I'm not sure if American fans know what they're in for; if they know how good Portugal is on the ball.
I would respect the US much more if they did try to attack and try to make it an open, attractive game, but that would leave their defenders vulnerable; and things could get very ugly.
