US falters late in 2-1 loss to Colombia in London
LONDON - Teofilo "Teo" Gutierrez headed in a tiebreaking goal in the 87th minute, and Colombia rallied to beat the United States 2-1 Friday night in an exhibition at Fulham's Craven Cottage.
Jozy Altidore converted a penalty kick in the 10th minute, his 25th international goal, after a hand ball against the South Americans. Altidore has scored just once for Sunderland this season.
Third-ranked Colombia tied the score on a 61st-minute goal by Carlos Bacca, and the Americans allowed a goal from the 86th minute on for the third straight match.
For one night, west London felt more like Barranquilla, with thousands of raucous fans wearing Colombia's yellow jersey.
