"You're kidding yourself if you think that this U.S. team is highly talented ... It's simply not as good as the elite of Europe and South America. We're not a bad team, and this was without doubt a very poor performance, but to compare ourselves to Brazil, Argentina, England, etc. that's simply not realistic. We let ourselves down today, and only 2-3 players can look in the mirror tonight. I hope they've learned a big lesson."
"That's just it, our passing is horrible. You can get away with always trying to lob the ball down the field over the defense to a quick forward in the MLS and have some success. But not at this level. You actually must know how to pass and work the ball in the middle."
