U.S. defense shows its inexperience as Robinson and Saief struggle on the left

TAMPA, Fla. -- For much of Dave Sarachan's time in charge of the United States men's national team, the focus has been on how to generate a more consistent attack. Heading into Thursday's friendly with Colombia, the U.S. had scored just eight goals in its last eight games.

But in the 4-2 defeat to Los Cafeteros, it was the U.S. defense that furrowed more brows and caused more heads to shake. From the opening whistle, Colombia decided it would test the left side of the U.S. defense, manned by left-back...

U.S. defenders Matt Miazga, John Brooks 4/10s in woeful Colombia outing

Goals from Kellyn Acosta and Bobby Wood had the U.S. briefly in the lead before Colombia stormed back with three second-half goals to seal the win.

In front of an overwhelmingly pro-Colombia crowd in Tampa, Florida, a naive but game United States team fell to the Colombians 4-2 at Raymond James Stadium on Thursday night. With a trio of exciting young Americans absent due to injury, interim U.S. head coach Dave Sarachan turned back to veteran Michael Bradley in midfield, but the Americans were ultimately outclassed by the superior opposition.


The American attack awoke after halftime, with a switch of sides by Tim Weah and Kenny Saief...

Colombia makes U.S. defense look slow in heavy friendly defeat

TAMPA, Fla. -- Colombia held off a feisty U.S. side in prevailing 4-2 in an international friendly Thursday. James Rodriguez opened the scoring in the 36th minute, but the U.S. roared back early in the second half thanks to goals from Kellyn Acosta and Bobby Wood. Colombia wouldn't be denied, however, as Carlos Bacca, Radamel Falcao and Miguel Borja responded with goals to give Los Cafeteros the victory.

Here are three thoughts from the match.

1. U.S. fights back but can't hold lead

It's been nearly one year since the U.S. had a permanent manager but does it matter?

When the U.S. men's national team plays Colombia in Tampa on Thursday, it will coincide with the most painful of anniversaries. It will be one day and one year since the Americans' bid to qualify for the 2018 World Cup was extinguished on a steamy night in Couva, Trinidad.

Three days after that debacle, Bruce Arena stepped down as manager. And as of today, with a friendly against Colombia on Thursday in Tampa, they've yet to officially replace him. Interim coach Dave Sarachan has been keeping...

'We are looking forward' - John Brooks says U.S. are past World Cup disappointment

WOLFSBURG, Germany -- When right-back William swings in one last cross, only seconds are remaining on the clock as Wolfsburg are down 2-1 at home to Hertha Berlin on September 15. In the box, defender John Brooks rises higher than two Berlin players, gets to the ball with his head and finds Admir Mehmedi on the edge of the penalty area. The Switzerland international gets his foot onto it and fires home, securing the hosts a deserved 2-2 draw.

Minutes later, the 25-year-old Brooks stands close...

Michael Bradley returns as U.S. begins process of mixing old guard with young core

Michael Bradley, 31, is back with the USMNT for the first time since the defeat to Trinidad and Tobago.
Michael Bradley, 31, is back with the USMNT for the first time since the defeat to Trinidad and Tobago.

There was only one way Christian Pulisic's return to the U.S. men's national team could be overshadowed, yet caretaker manager Dave Sarachan obliged. Michael Bradley is back in the U.S. fold.

For years now, Bradley, 31, has divided opinion like no other U.S. player. When the U.S. faces Colombia in a friendly on Oct. 11, it will be just over a year since the Americans suffered their greatest humiliation, that of losing to Trinidad and Tobago 2-1, a defeat that eliminated them from qualifying for...
