Unfocused Americans win easy
Kazahstan still waiting for their first goal of the tournament.
Perhaps Team USA alrady had their thoughts on the game against Canada today because they didn't start the game against the weak Kazakhstan so strong. But when Ian Cole finally found the net after 16:26 the game was almost already over and USA quickly added two more goals for a 3-0 lead after the first 20 minutes.
Kazakhstan had three shots on goal for the first fourty minutes and when game was over the final score was 12-0. Kazakhstan managed to avoid relegation last year but this year's teams is clearly not good enough to play at this level, a 0-36 goal difference after three games says all about their quality.
