USA players can still improve – Donovan
Following the 1-1 draw with England on Saturday, USA still has plenty of improving to do according to star midfielder Landon Donovan.
Bob Bradley’s USA team managed to take a point away from their clash with much their more fancied rivals but the belief within the playing group is that they can produce more as the group stage goes on and record the points needed to get into the Round of 16.
"We're proud of the effort we put in and getting a result against one of the best teams in the world is a very positive start," he told FIFA.com. "Our energy, desire and willingness to fight was very good, but from a technical point of view we weren't as good as we wanted things to be.
“It's easy for people to tell us that we should qualify for the knockout stage and this is an easy group to navigate, but we know that it's going to be difficult. We cannot afford to take Slovenia lightly and we’ve got to work on the things that didn't go as well as we'd hoped over the next few days."
