I'd say true. Focus on the big picture here though.
Certainly every national team game you play is to get better for the World Cup. Even when you're with your club, you're trying to impress the national team coach in addition to your club's success and keeping your job.

Yedlin and Green both showed out tonight on an enormous stage. Jurgen is setting up for something big and I for one am excited. Howard was reduced to tears in the postgame interview with Schaap and I think it's cause he saw something special in this team.
