The U.S. opened the Copa América Centenario with a mood-killing 2-0 loss to Colombia here at Levi’s Stadium on Friday. An eighth-minute strike by Cristián Zapata off a corner kick and a penalty by James Rodríguez bookended a first half that saw the U.S. out-executed in key moments that decided the game.

The U.S. will now face significant pressure in its next game against Costa Rica on Tuesday in Chicago if it wants to have any chance of advancing as one of the top two teams in the group.
