These ratings aren’t anything to write home about.

The United States Men’s National Team suffered their first loss during 2022 World Cup qualifying when they lost to Panama 1-0 on Sunday night at Estadio Rommel Fernandez. The USMNT managed just 5 shots total, 0 on goal, and it was an overall miserable match. Couple that with the elite Concacafing that occurred during the match, especially the very end, and it was just a frustrating night for American fans. The USMNT fall to 2nd in the Octagonal table, 3 points behind Mexico and level with Canada on points but ahead on goal differential.

Because the match was so bad from a performance standpoint, the SSFC community let the players, head coach Gregg Berhalter, and the referee have it in the community ratings. However, there was one player who was rated higher than the rest. Despite allowing a goal (which bounced off the head of Gyasi Zardes), goalkeeper Matt Turner was voted the SSFC Man of the Match by the community.

Here are the rest of the ratings for the players, along with Berhalter and referee Cesar Ramos:

Matt Turner - 5.65

Tyler Adams - 5.58

Brenden Aaronson - 5.36

Walker Zimmerman - 5.27

Ricardo Pepi - 5.09

Yunus Musah - 4.76

Tim Weah - 4.34

DeAndre Yedlin - 4.34

Shaq Moore - 4.07

Mark McKenzie - 3.99

Paul Arriola - 3.62

Cristian Roldan - 3.62

George Bello - 3.55

Kellyn Acosta - 3.15

Sebastian Lletget - 2.85

Gyasi Zardes - 2.30

Gregg Berhalter (Coach) - 1.65

Cesar Ramos (Referee) - 5.07
