England have the aggressive stance and have a higher possession rate and are able to create chances but they just always mess up, they need some skillers and some team work, for some reason they all want to be the hero of the match.

They managed to get through to the knockout stage but when they come up against a strong team they have less chance of winning.
wales have been awesome, especially that free kick from gareth bales against england and slovakia. they have a better team then england even though they lost to england.

i agree with this take: http://screamer.deadspin.com/a-good-shitkicking-is-what-u-s-soccer-needed-1782414458

Quote
But there’s another way to look at this, endorsed by Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl, and it’s almost optimistic in its bleakness. The USMNT and their fans needed this wake-up call, the argument goes, not necessarily because the team was bad (they were not good), but because it’s hard to truly appreciate the greatness we aspire to without that greatness having its way with us. This is what a world No. 1-ranked team looks like, and for all the progress U.S. Soccer has made in recent years and decades, for all the pride justifiably taken from evolving into a competent soccer nation, the Argentines looked like they were playing an entirely different sport out there.

the article doesn't take it to the next step, which is: jurgen klinsmann is absolutely right and we need to start flooding european clubs with any talented american kids they'll take. MLS is fine and all, i'm glad it's getting more popular. but it's a B or C league. we have more people than the uk, germany, france, and spain put together. we have metric tons of very athletic children, many of whom like to play soccer. we just don't have anything resembling the technical skill of even the likes of portugal and we are not capable of developing it domestically past a certain point. someone pointed out before the game that argentina has a player, sergio aguero, who would be the greatest american player of all time but COMES OFF THE BENCH for argentina. he joined his local club's youth program at age 9, made his senior team debut at 15, then left for atletico madrid at age 18 and has been in elite european competition ever since. more of that, please.

ya man we looked like we didn't belong there at all. I was in awe of argentina just casually passing the ball back and forth, while still attacking.. was so effortless for them. They had no "panic". Every time we touched the ball, we were in panic mode.

I thought that Shaqiri goal was the best of the tournament so far!

Man but these European teams continue with their very tactical approach, I was disappointed in that Croatia v Portugal match. Those are teams that traditionally play good attacking futbol but no one wants to risk much until the end it seems. More goals than ever being scored last minutes of matches here.

Germany plays tomorrow and they're my favorite to support. You'll see no caution on their end, just take to the opponent all match long.

USA v Columbia tonight too! That USA game v Argentina was unfortunate, you can see a lot of the players lack the class when the speed of play is at the top level. But it also stinks for the US bc they can't sit back and defend and counter bc it's the USA and they're expected to go out there and compete with the top. It would also be more difficult to draw in fans to a team that defends much. So it's unfortunate really they didn't give themselves much of a chance.

I also thought that Messi goal should've been saved. Guzan is a bit on the short side which I think hurt him but he also got wrong footed. Compare to this save made tonight by Fabianski v Switzerland.

USA / COL was pretty good.. sooooo many chances for the US, too bad they couldn't convert.

ARG / CHL tmw at 6 PM ET. should be a ridiculous game.
