    For the most part I agree. Dempsey had a great game aginst Ghana and Portugal, Besler was solid except against Belgium, Beckerman should have been higher rated. They disappointments were definitely Bradley for a lack of creativity, Cameron had a nightmare against Portugal, bedoya had all that experience for Nantes and rangers and just didn't perform.

    Yedlin appeared to have a great match against Belgium because he went forward all the time. In reality the huge amount of space he gave up defensively was where Belgium originated a lot of it's attack. A team that gives up 37 shots should not have two defenders rated with 8's.

    Yedlin should have been below Johnson and Beasley, but his positives (creativity & speed) were more noticeable than his negatives (as Frank pointed out, the space he left behind). Additionally, his performances were much shorter, but still impressive. Otherwise I think the ratings are accurate.
