Lackluster U.S. Fall to Brazil, 2-0

Posted on 11 August 2010 by ASN Staff

A Brazilian national team missing several starters from the World Cup easily defeated a “B+” U.S. side on Tuesday night at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Teenage phenom Neymar and Alexandre Pato scored first half goals for the visitors, whose victory never really seemed in doubt outside of a chance by Landon Donovan in the opening minutes. The U.S. looked rusty and seemed uninspired, if not wholly uninterested in the proceedings on the pitch. Few Yanks outside of Maurice Edu and Benny Feilhaber showed any real workrate.
