US 1-1 v the Argies. Good result I imagine.
U.S. Midfielder CLINT DEMPSEY
On if the United States gave Argentina too much respect:
“It was difficult because we really wanted to keep possession, so that means we were having to run a lot. So when we did get the ball, players were a little bit tired and might have been careless a few times with the ball. That didn’t help us because it put us right under the gun again. I thought in the second half things opened up a little bit more and we were able to affect them more on the counter-attack. At the end, it was like anybody could have got the game. We’re happy with the result, but we would have liked to have had more possession and we would have liked to create more chances, but that’s the way it goes sometimes.”
The new third shirt looks pretty nifty, too.
