Room for US improvement?

GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – The United States U-20 squad ran all over Suriname in their opening match of the CONCACAF Championship on Tuesday night, but head coach Thomas Rongen still feels like his team can improve going forward.

Sebastian Lletget, for example, found himself too deep, which also brought Conor Doyle too far back. The team let up for stretches of 10 minutes at a time. And Rongen’s charges could play forward more, instead of sideways or backwards.

WASHINGTON – The one player perhaps making the most of this season’s return of the reserve league is a new face in D.C. United camp, and he’s also suddenly making life for head coach Ben Olsen very interesting.

Starting at the right back for injured regular Jed Zayner, the Akron product looked comfortable in DC’s defense and was glad to get that first pro experience done and dusted.

“It was exciting to get that first game out of the way,” Korb told MLSsoccer.com. “I wish we would have won. It’s never fun when you lose and I’m pretty competitive, so it wasn’t the best first game.”
