LA Galaxy star Landon Donovan says USA are full of confidence, despite their 4-1 defeat to Brazil.

The USA were on the wrong end of several poor decisions during the game.

Donovan said: “It’s a little hard to say you’re relatively satisfied after losing 4-1 but I think, all things considered, we played OK. We fell asleep on a set piece and got punished for it. We fell asleep on the Marcelo goal a little bit and got punished for it.

"The other two goals I think were probably aided by poor officiating and it’s unfortunate. But I think the way we played, the chances we created – not many teams create that many chances against Brazil. I think we were a little unlucky not to score and maybe need to be a little sharper to score.”
