    Colombia show us just how far away we are.
    .
    Off ball movement and ability to create space for teammates then exploit that space is light years ahead.

    Memo to John Brooks… you cannot give James Rodriguez 2 feet of space while he jags and jukes to his favored positions inside the box for a flick cross that results in a bicycle kick gol punctuating just how far away we are.
    .
    And what of Michael Bradley? Over him.

  2. i was mildly interested in the Columbia game, mainly for Fafa. had the Eagles not been playing i might have even watched it. been over Bradley “leading” this team for years.
