    If there was VAR it would be 5-0.

    The largest USMNT win ever is 8-0 FTR.

    That makes sense though. Canada is such a good team.

    Iím sorry, but this canít be just blamed on Berhalter, the players on the field were just terrible.

    From Reddit:
    Lol in this thread the hate for GGG... he can't play the positions for these guys and keep them from making stupid mistakes. These are professional players and they couldn't complete simple passes... he also can't magically summon a different player pool.

    Is GGG Gregg Berhalter's nickname? If so that's rather funny.

    North Korea hosts South Korea for the first time in 30 years in menís WC qualifier... in front of empty stands and no tv. Total apparent blackout and with internet issues South Korea had to email updates.

    For as much **** as the US is getting for last night, and deservedly so, Canada deserves a lot of credit. They've come a long way the last few years and have put together a tricky side with a lot of likable talent, and that game has to be a big confidence boost. With their own league now in existence (with a caliber of play that honestly surprised me), excited to see the future of Canadian soccer.

    While Canada had not defeated the US in 34 years...some of that was USA dominance, but some of that was Canada incompetence. There really is no reason that Canada shouldn't be in the Hex regularly and the confederation shouldn't have a big 4. It is nice to see Canada get this in from their perspective.

    Yeah, itís the biggest thing from last night thatís being ignored, people just seemingly ignoring the fact Canada has a good team with a star player that is arguably better than Pulisic.

    Didn't they blame Arena before this and Jergen Whatshiskraut before that?

    It sounds like the US soccer media is basically the Boston sports media. Always Be Chiding.

    It's a fairly young group too. Only 4 players on the squad called up for this game are in their 30s (Borjan is 31, Vitoria 32, Arfield 30, and backup keeper Jayson Leutwiler is 30)

    Iím seeing blame tossed at everything but the players. Berhalter, Klinsmann, Arena, Earnie Stewart (the USMNT GM), Carlos Cordeiro (US Soccer President), MLS, Don Garber, US Soccer, Trump, Obama, everyone but the actual players.

    Every time Pulisic got the ball he would try to dribble through 5 Canadian players and give the ball up. Josh Sargent is supposed to be a forward and is standing by the US goal. Nobody in the midfield could complete a basic pass at times. Two players leave a Canadian completely unmarked at the back post for a goal. But itís the coachís fault.

    You couldnít pay me enough to be the USMNT Coach right now. Everyone is mad as hell and wants results RIGHT NOW despite the fact that a) the current veteran players are either largely not very good or past their prime and b) the young players are not good enough at the international level yet to replace said veterans.

    Itís not like Berhalter went Klinsmann-esque crazy with a new formation and players playing positions they donít know. It was a solid lineup and formation given the player pool and they just sucked.
