Give me ambiguity or give me something else.
We look like we're not being as proactive on defense as we should be.....slow getting to the ball......
The problem is that this is a team that can absolutely punish us for the way we've been defending. Against lesser teams Weston or Adams would have been there to contest that cutback pass to Depay, but the Netherlands are too quick for our midfield to get caught behind on the initial run.

At times this team is either too nice, or too timid. They're either making the extra pass to give someone else the shot; or are not confident enough to take their shot when it's available.

The US could not afford to give up that early goal. This team simply cannot score, and now the Netherlands will simply play solid defense. I suspect that any further scoring will require a big mistake by either side.
