The USMNT has been thrashed, 5-1, by Colombia in what ended up being a disaster friendly for Gregg Berhalter’s men before the start of the Copa America later this month.

The Star and Stripes were utterly embarrassed in front of their own fans in no other but the nation’s capital – Washington DC – on Saturday, as they held onto a 2-1 score up until the 77th minute. 

Up until that point, the US – ranked No. 11 in FIFA’s world rankings – had dreamt of coming back from 2-0 down against the side ranked just below them (No. 12) as Juventus star Timothy Weah pulled a goal back after Jhon Arias (6′) and Rafael Borré (19′) scored in the first half for the Colombians.

But three quick goals in less than 13 minutes from Los Cafeteros’ Richard Rios (77′), Jorge Carrascal (85′) and Luis Sinisterra (88′) shocked the home side ahead of their first Copa America group game against Bolivia on June 23.
