Grant Wahl focused on the goalkeeper's postgame response to the USA's narrow win over Guadeloupe: The expression that Tim Howard wore said it all. There's a frustration inside the U.S. national team right now, an awareness among the players and the coaching staff that they need to start playing better if they want to win the Gold Cup.

Howard couldn't help shaking his head as he met the media following a 1-0 U.S. win that did little to quell the belief that something isn't quite right in this U.S. team right now.
