'US Lacked Respect For Colombia In 5-1 Mauling': Gregg Berhalter

United States coach Gregg Berhalter accused his players of lacking respect for Colombia after the South Americans romped to an emphatic 5-1 friendly victory over the Copa America hosts on Saturday.

"There were some positive chunks of the game, right. But when I'm looking right now at 5-1, it's not good enough."

Berhalter named a starting line-up comprised entirely of players from
