"We needed the three points", said Jozy Altidore, who had the assist on Pulisic's second goal. Arena knew what he wanted, he communicated it clearly, and his team executed.
Now heading into the Gold Cup, Arena will have the chance to experiment with talent and expand his player pool. I like to make fun of people whose criteria for rating players are subjective and nebulous words like "grit" and "heart", but Beasley out-hearted everyone else on the field on Sunday, and I don't care if he didn't have the best game. With a win at home vs. Honduras, Panama would leap back ahead of the US and into third place with nine points, one ahead of the Yanks and five points in front of the fifth-placed Catrachos. "So whatever has gotten us there, whatever occasion or bonding that's led to a change, that's a positive, and certainly Bruce has to receive a lot of credit". For Mexico. Héctor Herrera blasted a curling free kick that beat Brad Guzan but smacked off the crossbar.
In Germany, where Bradley is remembered for his stint with Borussia Moenchengladbach, the headlines included "USA ties thanks to magical goal" and "Bradley scores dream goal against Mexico".
Defensively, Arena's team was stout. He went with a 3-4-3 formation, with Geoff Cameron, Christian Pulisic, Bradley and DeAndre Yedlin being the only holdovers from the Trinidad game. After well-placed outlet passes provided the setup, forward Carlos Vela did the legwork himself, making space for himself in the attacking third and leaving DaMarcus Beasley in the dust, finishing with a sharply fired strike that found the back of the net.
It really couldn't have gone much better.
Quite a turnaround since November, when a 2-1 home loss to Mexico and a 4-0 wipeout in Costa Rica caused the U.S. Soccer Federation to fire coach Jurgen Klinsmann and bring back Arena, the U.S. coach from 1998-2006. In addition, defender Carlos Salcedo left in the 54th minute Thursday after hurting a leg. For one thing, it would allow Bradley greater flexibility in terms of participating in the buildup play when the USA have the ball, as opposed to staying put in front of the back line. Games against Portugal, New Zealand and the tournament host, Russia, await El Tri in Group B of the competition. Arena has fixed that, and in the process, with a slim margin for error, has gone unbeaten in his first four Hex games.
"Mexico does an unbelievable job in their spacing", Arena said in the post-match press conference. Against Mexico, his team reflected that. That wasn't the case in previous years.
MEXICO CITY (AP) - The U.S. will have to step up when it plays Mexico at Estadio Azteca in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday, and not just because of the altitude.
This was a moment of sublime skill, one you don't normally expect from a US team usually defined by its rough-and-tumble athleticism. However, there are many of those who believe the senior team are relying too heavily on older players and to a small degree, I can agree with that. Numerous stars of the last week - including Christian Pulisic, Darlington Nagbe, and, Sunday night, the exceptionally assured Kellyn Acosta - have been new faces.
DeAndre Yedlin remained on the right, with Tim Ream and Omar Gonzalez joining Geoff Cameron in the center and 35-year-old DaMarcus Beasley on the left, Beasley, who had not started for the USA since October 2015, became the first American to appear in qualifiers of five World Cup cycles.
This might be as much in praise of Bradley and Bruce Arena's use of him in this game as it is an indictment of Jermaine Jones and his current place on the team.
