The USA game against Turkey showed what this team is possible of doing, the 2nd half showing looked like the style of play that was seen in the confederation's cup last year. Success in the tournament will depend on who suits up on defense since they have some of the defenders come back from injury and in the midfield to create opportunities for the forwards up top. In Group C the US can get out of the the group stage and make the final 16 but they got to play their game and not take any team in the group stages for granted.
