The U.S. men’s Olympic team fell, 1-0, to Cameroon on Sunday in Hong Kong. A first-half penalty kick goal proved to be the difference for the Africans.

Here is the lineup the Americans trotted out against Cameroon:

————–McBride————-Altidore——————

Rogers——–Holden————Bradley———— Kljestan

Orozco———-Edu———Parkhurst—————Wynne

————————Guzan————————————

Freddy Adu came on for Altidore in the 64th minute. Charlie Davies entered for Brian McBride in the 69th minute. Dann Szetela and Benny Feilhaber entered for Michael Bradley and Robbie Rogers in the 79th minute.

The result drops the Americans to 0-1-1 at the ING Tournament in Hong Kong. The U.S. team will now travel to China for the Olympics. The United States face Japan on Aug. 7th.

What do you think of the result? Is a second straight game without a goal a concern? Do you think Michael Orozco can handle left back duties? Surprised to see Freddy Adu not in the starting lineup?
