For 60 to 65 minutes, Jurgen Klinsmann said he was very pleased by what he was seeing from the US national team.

The Yanks head coach said they were the “better team” in the Wednesday friendly against Chile at Estadio El Teniente in Rancagua while building a 2-1 lead through the first hour. But then one of Klinsmann’s primary concerns since last summer’s World Cup reared its head: the USMNT’s fitness level.

As far as January friendlies go, this wasn’t bad. Usually these games are the drab, disjointed sorts that make Australian Open fans of us all.

This one wasn’t that. Or it was half that, anyway – because the US backline was predictably disjointed. That’s what happens when you play, as Alexi Lalas said at halftime, “Straight up street-ball.” The US played a new formation, a mostly new defense, an attacking midfielder converted to d-mid, and two natural wingbacks who’ve only occasionally played that spot as pros.

CHI 3, USA 2: Yanks squander lead again after Shea, Altidore goals
MLSsoccer.com

It’s a new year for the US national team, but it was a very familiar result in their first match of 2015.

The Yanks squandered two leads after goals by Brek Shea and Jozy Altidore in a 3-2 loss Wednesday to Chile in an international friendly at Estadio El Teniente in Rancagua. Roberto Gutierrez scored first for Chile, and Mark Gonzalez came away with the second-half brace to send US to their third straight loss.
