The United States can be proud of their overall performance in the Copa America Centenario. They got to the semi-finals and ran into the buzzsaw that is Argentina. The Americans were outclassed from kick-off and deserved every bit of the 4-0 beating they were given.
Tonight, they face off with Colombia, a squad they lost to 2-0 on the tournament’s opening day, with a chance to take the bronze in the tournament. But the same fate from that first day may lay ahead of them this evening. However, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything fun to look for.
- Everton legend Tim Howard is getting the start between the sticks.
- Expect to see youngsters Christian Pulisic and Darlington Nagbe get significant minutes in a game that, essentially, means nothing. It will be a glimpse into the future.
- This could be the last hurray for some of the older Yanks: Jermaine Jones, Kyle Beckerman, Chris Wondowlowski, Graham Zusi, etc., if they get on the field at all.
- Michael Bradley has had a terrible competition. He is often thought of as the closest thing to “world class” that the US has, but his position in the club may be slipping. He always seems to struggle in the spotlight, which is not a tolerable attribute.
- Bobby Wood is back! After being suspended for the semi-final, the American striker should be back in the fold. He is the most fun player to watch on the team by far.
