continued getting ready for the busy summer time to come by patiently dismantling acquainted foe Jamaica for a

in Wiener Neustadt, Austria on Thursday.

United States Player Rankings

Zack Steffen (5.5) — Apart from what has grow to be a routine ball-handling goof, the Man City netminder obtained caught overplaying a pointy angle on Jamaica’s lone goal. Steffen made up for it to some extent with a terrific last-minute theft.

Reggie Cannon (6) — It wasn’t a wholly bad outing, to make sure, however it was undoubtedly much less regular than we have come to expect from Cannon. His work going forward was solely intermittently convincing and the Boavista proper back was among the many culpable on Jamaica’s goal rush.

Aaron Lengthy (5.5) — Though he made a few good assist performs on the back, the Red Bulls man additionally skilled some disconcerting hiccups. One cannot do issues like permitting a forward to push you back 10 feet on a routine hold-up play and turning the ball over proper in entrance of your own space, and Lengthy did each on this one earlier than departing at halftime.

John Anthony Brooks (6.5) — The Wolfsburg back line put in a reasonably nondescript shift, however preserving uncommon Jamaica threats in entrance of him and taking part in merely out of the back was a lot on this night time.

Sergino Dest (8) — Merely put, the Barcelona vast back was a category above on this one. Dest saved the team chugging forward all through his shift, repeatedly opening areas for teammates together with his penetration dribbles. He punctuated the performance with an ice-breaker goal made for the spotlight reel.

Kellyn Acosta (7) — Full disclosure: I used to be fairly doubtful about Acosta beginning within the gate-keeper position. And I used to be wrong. The Colorado midfielder was all over the place, performing as strain valve at one end and as Alex Ring-esque possession assist on the different. There have been occasions I used to be satisfied there have been two Acostas out there. Can he do this against top foes? I do not know, however it’s value discovering that out. He does get dinged for letting the set-up go slip by on Jamaica’s goal, however solely barely as a result of he’d busted his hump just to get back as cowl.

Yunus Musah (6.5) — We obtained one other encouraging shift from the Valencia teenager, who appeared to make choices slightly faster on the ball than the last time we noticed him. Musuh could also be inexperienced, however he seems set to be a real transition sport weapon for a decade to come.

Sebastian Lletget (7.5) — The USMNT’s designated glue man did that job to a tee earlier than turning into the insurance coverage man with a pair {of professional} strikes within the waning moments.

Giovanni Reyna (6.5) — The Borussia Dortmund phenom’s indecisiveness challenge was obvious early, however he grew into the sport and began considering the sport on top of things. Although Reyna was unable to conjure any end product, his potential to unnerve defenses was on present over the back half of his 68 minutes.

Christian Pulisic (6) — Very similar to with Reyna, Pulisic’s exhibiting was extra about dislodging the defense to the good thing about teammates than it was about producing the big play.

Josh Sargent (6.5) — The Werder Bremen striker struggled to make space noise against Jamaica’s fast, bodily defenders till a superb slip move allowed him to tee up the US winner early within the second half.

Coach Gregg Berhalter (7) — The boss typically pulled all the precise levers to maintain the team pointing in the precise path. Utilizing Acosta because the No. 6 might someday prove to be a grasp stroke.

Full highlights: USMNT 4, Jamaica 0


Brenden Aaronson (7) — The dedicated transition engine wasted little time making an influence, and had a goal for his troubles after just seven minutes of play.

Chris Richards (6) — The young defender appeared glorious proper up till the moment he inexplicably allowed a restart serve to bounce throughout the US doorstep.

Nicholas Gioacchini (6.5) — It was a barely clumsy start for the Caen attacker, however he shortly obtained into the circulation and served up a smart assist on Lletget’s first strike.

Antonee Robinson (6.5) — It was a stable reduction outing for the Fulham left back, who pushed play up his flank and served a few tempting crosses into the field.

Luca de la Torre (7) — It may actually be argued that nobody raised their US inventory on the night time as a lot as De la Torre. He turbo-charged the transition sport late, and ultimately notched the good assist his probing efforts deserved.

Jordan Siebatcheu (-) — The striker was restricted to a mild header on goal throughout his eight-minute USMNT debut.
