Friendly 2011 Usa Spain

4 June 2011
Gillette Stadium,
Foxborough, Mass

Well, that wasn't a very good day at the office for the United States men's national team. They were without four of their first team locks in the starting lineup - Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey, Michael Bradley and Carlos Bocanegra - but that's not an excuse for how poorly they performed against Spain on Saturday afternoon. The World Cup champions and No. 1 team in the world showed why they have earned those distinctions, walking out of Gillette Stadium with a 4-0 win.
Santi Cazorla scored a brace in the first half, while Alvaro Negredo added a goal of his own. Spain let off the gas in the second half of the game, though substitute Fernando Torres scored a goal of his own. David Silva was absolutely brilliant in the first half, as he was the primary catalyst for both of Cazorla's goals.
The United States team that faces Canada in the Gold Cup on Tuesday will be a much different team than the one who played Spain tonight, but there will be a few players who start in both games. Those players will have to play considerably better on Tuesday than they played tonight for the USMNT to open Gold Cup with a victory.
