Gold Cup 2015 results and highlights: USA men’s soccer team hammer Cuba
Cuba’s soccer team has emerged as the worst performing team in the ongoing Gold Cup 2015. Almost every team is hammering it with huge margins and rather ruthlessly.
The way Cuba has played thus far and given its performance, it doesn’t look better than a local club level team.
Their last match against USA on Saturday afternoon in Baltimore against a depleted Cuba in the quarterfinal. The final score? 6-0 to the Americans.
It is something that every team wants, easy opponent to hammer.
It is no denying the fact that all plyers did play well.
Brad Guzan, 7 â€“ Easy night for the American #1, who had little to do but did it well.
Timmy Chandler, 6 â€“ Chandler, whoâ€™s always better when not pressured in defense, notched a solid assist on the opener to highlight his 45 minutes.
Ventura Alvarado, 6 â€“ Alvarado, who needed a good showing to retain his place once John Brooks is back from suspension, had a mostly comfortable night.
Omar Gonzalez, 8 â€“ The big LA Galaxy defender scored his first goal for the national team in a good all-around performance. He should be in the team going forward.
Fabian Johnson, 7 â€“ Looked good, like he always does, and was especially active early on. Got the assist on the second goal.
Kyle Beckerman, 6 â€“ Beckerman cleaned up his passing act for this one, and is appearing to relish another â€“ possibly his last â€“ run in a major tournament.
Alejandro Bedoya, 7 â€“ Bedoya is playing good soccer, doing plenty of running, and quietly reestablishing himself as a key cog for Jurgen Klinsmann. Well done.
Gyasi Zardes, 8 â€“ Very nice game from Zardes, who was back out on the wing. Got a goal, but more importantly, was smarter with his runs and worked well with those around him. Looks like a starter in the next game.
Michael Bradley, 8 â€“ Didnâ€™t score â€“ and he very well could have â€“ but there is very little to complain about on a three-assist night.
