Tim Howard 7/10 – The departing Everton keeper couldn’t do much about the goal and made a handful of smart saves to help keep the US in the game until the death.

DeAndre Yedlin 6.5/10 – The Tottenham Hotspur defender posed a real threat attacking down the flank, although his crossing once again left a lot to be desired.

Geoff Cameron 7/10 – The Stoke City centre-back won his fair share of physical battles and distributed the ball well out of the back.

Matt Besler 6/10 – Had a few shaky moments here and there but generally applied himself well. Perhaps could’ve been in a better position on Colombia’s goal, though.

Michael Orozco 4/10 – Caught out of position far too often before being sent off in the closing stages for slapping Colombia’s Santiago Arias in the face. A bad night for the versatile defender and one which could spell bad news for his USA future.

Gyasi Zardes 7/10 – Helped fashion several chances and did some good defensive work, too. That said, he needed to be more ruthless in the final third.

Jermaine Jones 7/10 – Always eager to bring the ball forward and nearly forced an own goal with a dangerous cross. Didn’t shirk his defensive duties either.

Michael Bradley 5.5/10 – Largely subdued and sluggish after seemingly picking up an injury during the first half. Hasn’t been a good tournament for the skipper.

Alejandro Bedoya 7/10 – Typically industrious, helping link up play effectively in midfield. Also asked to do a lot of defensive work because of Orozco’s struggles.

Clint Dempsey 7.5/10 – Forced a fine save out of David Ospina in the second half with an excellent free-kick before heading the ensuing corner just over the bar. A real bright spot despite failing to get on the scoresheet.

Bobby Wood 7/10 – Rattled the woodwork in the second half and helped open up Colombia’s defence with his direct running and movement.


Christian Pulisic (Bedoya 74) 6/10 – The 17-year-old got involved in some nice plays around the opposition area during the last 15 minutes.

Darlington Nagbe (Bradley 79) 6/10 – Showed enough to suggest he could have made a difference to the scoreline had he been brought on sooner.
