Even in spain where they have a lot of NBA players, they generally don't know much more than the players from spain and then a few of the top stars...

Their strategy to accomplish that sucked. they would have lost by more than 1-0 if they had put men forward. the u.s. was clearly superior and they picked up on that early. so they chose to counter and they had their chances.

Quote: Originally Posted by embowafa Agreed. I was really confused by the players, coaches, and fans reactions after the game. Did they not realize they needed a multiple goal victory to advance?!? They played like they were defending a lead. they were playing for a counter and letting the u.s. exhaust themselves. it almost worked.
you will not see or here me say this for another for years: u.s.a! u.s.a! u.s.a!

if you're willing to spend $15 look at a 928.
