Had Argentina needed to score 8 I think they could have. US struggled at times to look like it deserved to be on the same pitch. Overall the Copa was a good showing for the US but it also showed just how far the US has to go to compete against the top teams.
The US is mostly MLS players. Argentina is made up mainly of players from the the top European leagues. Their subs are better than our starters.
Argentina is ranked #1 in the world. The US is ranked #31. Getting as far as we did was an accomplishment.
