Box-to-box players are overrated and outdated.

The midfielders are going to be spotty as long as the team is built around the flashy players and not the best players. They focus on lobbing long balls and crosses for Wambach and Morgan. It's a backasswards strategy for a team with hilariously bad defenders. It's not obvious when they have a big talent advantage but in the tight games it shows.

They should be using their best players in midfield optimizing their technical skill in possession which would prevent some of the Englandesque chokes and near chokes that have been common in the current era.
