LANDOVER, Md. — The United States men's national team's preparation for the Copa America started with a 5-1 defeat against Colombia on Saturday in what is the team's worst loss under Gregg Berhalter. After quick goals from John Arias and Rafael Santos Borre, the USMNT was able to get a goal back after a good pass from Folarin Balogun against Tim Weah, but it was not the start of a comeback as Colombia scored an insurance goal in the 77th minute via Richard Rios. With everything already out of reach, Jorge Carrascal quickly scored a fourth, followed by Luis Sinisterra with a fifth for Colombia for good measure. With the USMNT facing their toughest opposition this calendar year in twelfth-ranked Colombia, it was a match that continued to show there is still a lot of work to be done.

This was still a friendly match where Berhalter wanted to know more about his team, which shows Christian Pulisic was withdrawn at half so Haji Wright could manage his minutes Tim Ream And Weston McKennie both are withdrawn before the end of the match. But now that the Copa America starts on June 21 with a match against Bolivia, improvement is needed and quickly. There is another friendly match on Wednesday, but against an even stronger team Brazil while the Americans are looking for momentum.
