Tab Ramos has some thinking to do
After thinking about it, here are some thoughts on the US U-20 team at the World Cup after the loss to Spain.

No one actually thought the US would beat Spain did they? Regardless it still was not the type of performance you would hope for from the States. A few things immediately come to mind when reflecting on this one. Here are a few points that I'm thinking about.

Will Zusi get the nod against Honduras
Jurgen Klinsmann has tough decisions to make when deciding his starting lineup against Honduras.

In the backline, DaMarcus Beasley has been starting at left back the last four qualifiers but the three-time World Cub veteran in suspended. The options here are either going with Edgar Castillo who had a solid year with Tijuana or moving Fabian Johnson to left back.

As a whole, the US played confident and creative soccer throughout. They pushed the game to Panama by attacking from various areas of the field and from different players.
