USA vs. Colombia, Copa America 2016: Full Match Highlights

Re-live the magic.

Allan Henry-USA TODAY Sports

The United States men's national team fell to Colombia in the third place match of the Copa America Centenario. They finished in fourth place. (That's what happens when you lose the third place match.)

That makes two losses in two matches against Colombia, although that's to be expected because they're a very highly-rated team.

Here are the highlights via Fox Soccer's YouTube page:

Carlos Bacca scored the match's lone goal in the 31st minute, which was assisted by Santiago Arias and James Rodriguez.

Michael Orozco was sent off in the 93rd minute with a red card. Santiago Arias was also sent to the locker room early with his second yellow.

Not a bad effort this tournament by the U.S. national team. Ultimately they finished with a 3-3 record, but they advanced further than most people thought they would. Jurgen Klinsmann was derided before the tournament, he was derided during the tournament, and he'll be derided after the tournament. For now, we can give him credit for accomplishing the self-imposed goal of reaching the semifinals.  He may still be let go, although I doubt it.

Next for the U.S. is World Cup Qualifying matches in September. They have some work to do before qualifying for the dreaded HEX(!!!), so the matches will require a top group of call ups.
