USA player ratings
G -- Tim Howard, 6: Received no help by his defenders but was solid making a fantastic save on Romulu Lukaku and worked with accuracy.
D -- DaMarcus Beasley, 6.5: He reached the 100 caps moving up and downs the flank a showing good skills on both offensive and defensive 1-on-1 situations.
D -- Clarence Goodson, 5: Overmatched and insecure playing alongside Gonzalez.
D -- Omar Gonzalez, 4.5: Simply unable to handle Lukaku.
D -- Geoff Cameron, 4: He scored his first international goal, but played a forgettable game. His defending was poor and didn't look comfortable all the evening.
M -- Brad Davis, 5: He started off strong but finished quiet. Not a good performance. He was taken off after 63rd minute.
