Passing: A Good Offense’s Secret Ingredient

We have repeatedly criticized the MNT for their failure to pass — that fundamental skill that many children are taught before they learn to shoot and sometimes even before learning to dribble.  And so when the U.S. finally fixes the problem, it’s worth pointing out.  During the Slovenia match, the U.S. attempted 428 passes (compared to 376 vs. England) and completed 303 (substantially more than the 218 they completed against England).  Their passing accuracy rate of 71% was significantly higher than the 58% they managed against England.  So, congrats gentlemen on passing.
