I didn't watch this whole match, only about 60% of it. And it is only a friendly, which the US probably took far more seriously than their South American opponents. But I thought the Americans were impressive. They spent a lot of time defending, however they did a good job of it, their positioning was solid, some of the young players looked very capable, and whenever the US did put together an attack, there was really a sense of a legitimate threat.
Stuart Holden will be missed on both sides of the Atlantic, but the US actually looks better equipped than Bolton to cope in his absense.
