The United States’ preparations for the upcoming Copa America suffered a humbling reality check on Saturday as Gregg Berhalter’s side were thrashed 1-5 by Colombia in a pre-tournament friendly. 


Colombia secured victory through first-half goals from Fluminense striker Jhon Arias before an overhead kick from Rafael Borre put the South Americans 2-0 ahead after just 19 minutes in Maryland.


The US were handed a lifeline after a well-worked goal by Timothy Weah on 58 minutes. But Colombia substitute Richard Rios slammed the door on any hope of a US revival on 77 minutes, coolly sweeping in a low finish to restore the visitors’ two-goal cushion before Jorge Carrascal added a fourth five minutes from time. Luis Sinisterra then tucked away a fifth on 88 minutes.
