The United States men were hammered by England’s B Team on Thursday at Wembley Stadium in a disappointing start to the international break.

Here’s how the individual players fared.
Brad Guzan — 4 — He’s going to get his chances due to a long track record with the national team, but his days as the presumed No. 1 must be done.
Jorge Villafana (Off 88′) — 4 — Not so good, Al.
Matt Miazga — 5 — The best you could say is it could’ve been worse for the Nantes man, as balls zipped through the 18 a bit too often.
John Brooks — 6 — A step better than Miazga, but would be better served in a back three.
DeAndre Yedlin — 5 — Active if inaccurate on the right edge, one of the players who looked the least intimidated by the competition.
Tim Weah (Off 76′) — 5 — Largely anonymous.
Wil Trapp (Off 70′) — 6 — Very busy in the center of the pitch, and probably the standout performer for the first hour in terms of the USMNT.
Weston McKennie (Off 76′) — 5 — Not his best day, but industrious in the center of the park.
Christian Pulisic — 4 — Had his moments, of course, but this was certainly not his day on a fairly decent sized stage (here in America). His 3 of a first half amended a bit by a 5 or 6 in the second stage, but the first part gets weighted because that’s when they needed their star. Heavy is the head…
Julian Green (Off 62′) — 4 — A couple moments of danger including a hard hit at Jordan Pickford, but largely anonymous.
Bobby Wood — 5 — Ran his shorts off, as usual, but lacked the instincts to prepare for a golden header chance and then dawdled in wasting a chance to spring Kenny Saief on goal.
Tyler Adams (On 62′) — 6 — A part of the steadying influence in the team during the second half.
Kellyn Acosta (On 70′) — 6 — Barely missed a beat in sliding in for Trapp, who had lofty responsibilities on the day.
Sebastian Lletget (On 76′) — N/A
Kenny Saief (On 76′) — N/A
