Matt Turner also spoke to TNT after the USMNT’s defeat: “Obviously this wasn’t the way we play, the way I play. Everybody needs to look in the mirror after that game and figure it out because obviously that’s not up to the level that’s required to compete with these South American teams.”

Asked about how the team can respond against Brazil on Wednesday, he rolled his eyes before responding: “I hate saying that we can’t get too hung up, we have a game in another couple of days. It’s important for us to be able to respond. When you look forward to tournaments it’s not always going to be perfect and you have figure out the ways to get the job done.

“Today we didn’t have any answers for the ways Colombia changed themselves, changed the way they pressed and they just had a different intensity about them that we didn’t have for the game. It’s really, really disappointing in front of such a great crowd to perform like that, so I want to apologize to the fans as well because that’s not what we’re about and we need to bounce back in a big way.”
