Finally watched the France game. The problem I see is too many of the same type of player on the field. Morgan, Press, Dunn, Pugh, Fox, Sonnett, and Sauerbraun -- all speed and no skill. Pugh is a 9, Dunn a 9, Morgan a 9, Press a 9. None of those players can make an accurate pass. Once Davidson came in (she can pass), there was a bit more connecting on the left side. Part of it is circumstance I guess bc Lavelle, Rapinoe and Heath were on the bench, but I'm still not convinced that those players even have the skill that France plays with. Horan looked ok at times, but she too struggled to connect a pass. I think Mewis better. I agree with earlier post that Brian just hasn't been the same since her injury -- looks a step slow and her touch is off. Lloyd has hung on too long and shoulda made room for a younger player. And I really don't get all the hype re Pugh? She's all speed. No 1v1 game. Can't connect a pass. And she's small so not gonna get on any headers. Yes, she scored, but the focus/effort by France isn't the same at 3-0 in stoppage time. This is what you get when you pick the fast players and think that you can train the skill into them over time. Doesn't work.
