Goals from Tim Ream, Bobby Wood and Paul Arriola secured Jurgen Klinsmann's side an easy 3-1 win in Sunday's friendly matchup at Juan Ramon Loubriel Stadium.
DeAndre Yedlin 8/10 – Easily the USA’s standout player on the day. Repeatedly wreaked havoc down the right flank with his pace while showcasing his recent defensive improvement. His Sunderland loan spell seems to have done wonders.
Michael Orozco 6/10 – Helped create Arriola’s goal with a well-placed ball into the final third but had a few nervous moments at the back that went unpunished. Far from a disaster, though.
John Brooks 6/10 – Arguably caught out on Puerto Rico’s goal but was relatively unchallenged otherwise during his 45-minute outing.
Tim Ream 6.5/10 – Opened the scoring in the 20th-minute with his first international goal after pouncing on a rebound and applied himself well at left-back. At the same time, though, his distribution could have been a lot better.
Perry Kitchen 6/10 – The Hearts man proved solid if somewhat unspectacular, but it didn’t help that he was being used out of position on the right-hand side of midfield.
Danny Williams 7.5/10 – Always looked eager to drive the ball forward and did plenty of work on the defensive end. On this evidence, the Reading midfielder can feel aggrieved about his omission from the Copa America squad.
Alejandro Bedoya 7/10 – Starting as skipper, the Nantes midfielder supplied the cross for Arriola’s goal and had several other bright moments in the attacking third.
Alfredo Morales 6.5/10 – Challenged the Puerto Rico goal with a couple of shots from distance, including the one which led to Ream’s opener, and grew in confidence as the match wore on.
Bobby Wood 7/10 – Fresh off a move to Hamburg, the Hawaii native took his first-half goal well and, despite a lack of service, looked dangerous throughout. Deserves to start come next month’s Copa America opener against Colombia.
Paul Arriola 7.5/10 – The 21-year-old Club Tijuana forward enjoyed a debut to remember, setting up Wood’s 34th-minute goal before completing the scoring himself 11 minutes after the break.
Tim Howard (Guzan 46) 6/10 – Only had one easy save to make.
Emerson Hyndman (Kitchen 46) 6.5/10 – Looked calm and assured on the ball and impressed with his work rate. Would have been nice to see him at the Copa America.
Eric Lichaj (Bedoya 62) 7/10 – Made one fantastic run during the final 10 minutes of the game to leave everyone wondering why it's taken two-and-a-half years for Klinsmann to give him another opportunity.
Julian Green (Ream 62) 6/10 – Threatened with his direct running at times but lacked end product when push came to shove.
Fafa Picault (Wood 71) 6/10 – Showed some good touches on his debut.
