Brooks 8/10, Zardes 7/10 as U.S. avenges last month's Canada defeat

The United States men's national team put in something of a redemptive performance in Orlando, Florida, on Friday night, besting Canada 4-1 at Exploria Stadium. The victory not only earned the Americans some relief from the negativity that has marked the past month and a measure of revenge against Canada, it set them up to advance atop their Nations League group with a win over hapless Cuba on Tuesday.

Positives

The Americans responded to the call for more fight with a spirited performance in...

U.S. national team big board: Who joins Pulisic in starting XI if World Cup began today?

The U.S. has a lot of depth and a lot of question marks in 2019. Who would make up the first team in a World Cup right now?

It's a big time for the U.S. men's national team. Qualification has yet to start for the 2022 World Cup, but the March international break sees competitive friendlies, with all the Europe-based U.S. stars, against Ecuador (Thursday, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN2) and Chile (March 26, 7:55 p.m. ET, ESPN2).

There's also the Gold Cup this summer. But what if action in Qatar kicked off today? How would Gregg Berhalter set up his team in that first group game?

U.S. defenders Matt Miazga, John Brooks 4/10s in woeful Colombia outing

Goals from Kellyn Acosta and Bobby Wood had the U.S. briefly in the lead before Colombia stormed back with three second-half goals to seal the win.

In front of an overwhelmingly pro-Colombia crowd in Tampa, Florida, a naive but game United States team fell to the Colombians 4-2 at Raymond James Stadium on Thursday night. With a trio of exciting young Americans absent due to injury, interim U.S. head coach Dave Sarachan turned back to veteran Michael Bradley in midfield, but the Americans were ultimately outclassed by the superior opposition.

Positives

The American attack awoke after halftime, with a switch of sides by Tim Weah and Kenny Saief...

WOLFSBURG, Germany -- When right-back William swings in one last cross, only seconds are remaining on the clock as Wolfsburg are down 2-1 at home to Hertha Berlin on September 15. In the box, defender John Brooks rises higher than two Berlin players, gets to the ball with his head and finds Admir Mehmedi on the edge of the penalty area.

Minutes later, the 25-year-old Brooks stands close...
