The United States Men’s National Team faced a devastating blow on home soil as they succumbed to a humiliating 5-1 defeat against a formidable Colombian squad in a friendly match before the upcoming Copa America tournament.

Tonight’s result marks the most lopsided defeat of the USMNT under the management of Gregg Berhalter. The Athletic’s Paul Tenorio provided a comprehensive analysis of the match, highlighting concerns over the team’s defensive vulnerabilities and assessing Christian Pulisic‘s performance during the limited time he spent on the field.

After the match, Berhalter labeled the loss as a ‘wake-up call’ and criticized his team for not showing respect towards the game and their opponents. Goalkeeper Matt Turner expressed disappointment over the performance, emphasizing the need to regroup and perform at a higher level, especially against strong South American teams like Colombia.

One of the few bright spots for the USMNT was Timothy Weah’s goal, assisted by Folarin Balogun, who has been a standout performer, contributing to a goal in six out of his first 10 appearances for the national team.

The defeat to Colombia marked a dismal defensive display by the USMNT, with the opposition capitalizing on numerous errors and exposing the vulnerabilities in the American backline.

Colombia’s dominance was evident as they became the first team to score five goals against the USMNT on American soil since Mexico achieved a similar feat in 2009.

Timothy Weah, the lone scorer for the USMNT, expressed disappointment over the team’s performance, acknowledging the challenges faced in midfield and the need for improvement moving forward.

Colombia’s unbeaten streak now extends to an impressive 22 matches, with seven consecutive wins leading them into the Copa America with strong momentum.

The match saw a series of substitutions for both teams, with players like Luis Sinisterra, Juan Fernando Quintero, and Ricardo Pepi making notable appearances.

The USMNT will need to regroup quickly and address their defensive issues as they prepare to face Brazil in their next friendly match.
