The road to Rio de Janeiro brings the U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team to Barranquilla today.

The first leg of the Olympic qualifying playoff between the U.S. and Colombia kicks off at the Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Meléndez in Colombia (5 p.m., Fox Sports 1/Univision Deportes Network).

Andi Herzog’s men will face a difficult, attack-minded Colombia team in the qualifying series, but he has the likes of Jordan Morris and Mario Rodriguez to cause the CONMEBOL nation problems.

  1. Why was Horvath subbed out after 45? Was he injured? If he wasn’t, US could have used that sub for some tired legs late in the 2nd half.

  2. Signs of a bad ref or a ref having a bad game:

    1) GK places ball for goal kick and steps back, wind rolls the ball 3 ft, GK goes to replace ball quickly, ref gives GK yellow card for wasting time.

    2) Colombian player goes down with no contact holding his hamstring, ref calls foul against US

    Don’t get me started on the no PK call on Morris.

    Btw, who tried to make that bicycle clearance that led to their goal? … This ain’t FIFA14…

      • No doubt but it’s also why you need someone with the awareness of playing the position week in and out. You can make grabs like that in the midfield, not so much in the box.

  3. Mario had that one good pass for goal but the speed of the game is too much for him. Jerome should come in for him.
