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.

"It was an OK performance: a little bit lifeless, but that's kind of the way it's been so far," Howard said. "But we're glad to get the win and at least move on. Maybe the Panama game [a 2-1 loss] knocked some stuffing out of us. ... We need to pull together, get to D.C. [for Sunday's quarterfinal against Jamaica] and get some training time together."

The field player Landon Donovan said, "We want to be better. This is a game we should have won probably 3- or 4-0, but the reality is that we won. That's all that matters at this point."
