If Bruce Arena wants his squad to qualify to the next round then he has to start Claudio Reyna. Reyna is simply the smartest and most technical player in the US. I would still keep McBride and Donovan as starters and bring in Clint Mathis in the second half. There is no question that Korea is compose of bionic men, their physical fitness is impecable. However football is not just about running hard for 90 minutes. This is a hard one to call S.Korea has thedge with a better coach, home field and their fitness. The US is more technical and they are also very fit. Again I am rooting for the US to win but something tells me this may be a draw (2-2 maybe)Oldsocfan said:Now, the question is whether USA should use the starting lineup from today, or put in fresher Claudio Reyna and Clint Mathis?
..and the USA defence made mistakes.Alarich said:i'm predicting a 2-1 win for South Korea, the whole stadium is gunno be full of South Korean supporters dress in red, that in itself will intimiate any team, plus anyways, South Korea has too much class, compare to USA, and the only reason USA beat Portugal was because Portugal played poorly
Well if the defense plays the way they did against Portugal, I really don't think that they get more then one goal in. Friedel is a solid goalkeeper, and it does not seem as if the Koreans have that much firepower. Moreover, we have a very well-conditionned team.Marco Golo said:
