ESPNW.com's Beau Dure wrote, "Gus Johnson's doing just fine. Nice job to do the goal call, back off for crowd noise, then let [co-commentator Warren] Barton analyze." The Orlando Sentinel's Paul Tenorio wrote, "At end of day he's not bad, but lacks the knowledge of game that soccer announcers add to their PxP. Little things."
