Twitter reacts to Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan's USA performance against Brazil

Benteke Scores Past Brad Guzan

Tuesday night's friendly match saw Jugen Klinsmann's side thumped 4-1 by the five-time World Cup champions.

Brad Guzan was a busy man on Tuesday night, as the US national team were outclassed by Brazil in a 4-1 defeat at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Brazil took the lead just nine minutes into the game when Willian took advantage of some poor US defending to set up Hulk for a simple finish, as the visitors proceeded to dominate the first-half.

Their second would not come until five minutes after the break, however, when half-time substitute and captain Neymar won and converted a penalty after being fouled by Stoke City’s Geoff Cameron in the box.

Fellow Barcelona forward Rafinha then added a third just after the hour following a swift counter-attack, before his skipper and club teammate grabbed his second goal of the game three minutes later to leave the US reeling.

The hosts finally got on the scoreboard in stoppage-time when Danny Williams sent a thunderous long-range strike past goalkeeper Marcelo Grohe but that was small consolation after being given the run-around for the entire night.

Guzan’s display was the only slight bright spot for Jurgen Klinsmann’s men, as the 30-year-old goalkeeper was forced to pull off a number of impressive saves while his defence let him down time and time again.

Nevertheless, with Everton counterpart and American fan favourite Tim Howard sitting on the bench after ending his 12-month international sabbatical this month, the Aston Villa No. 1's performance still garnered mixed reviews among supporters on Twitter during the match.

Already named the starter for next month’s crucial Confederations Cup play-off against Mexico, the claret and blue ace is looking to lock down the US starting job for good over the next few months, but support for the returning Howard still seems to be strong at this point.
