Don't buy into names. An otherwise average team in great form can (and often does) beat a great team in average form. The US team is better than most people would think, but at the same time isn't as good as many would like to think. But, when playing well, the US team can hang with almost anyone.

A lot changes in a year though. It's a common saying that you sometimes need one team to qualify for, and another team to compete in the World Cup. I think that applies to America in this case.
