Jozy Altidore's red card hampers an otherwise solid U.S. effort

ZURICH -- For 80 minutes against Switzerland, it was arguably the most impressive performance the U.S. national team had produced since the World Cup.

Then forward Jozy Altidore was issued a game-changing -- and completely avoidable -- red card for a profanity-filled tirade on referee Luca Banti, forcing his teammates to play the final 22 minutes of the match down a man.

Netherlands win easily as Spain still struggling with post-World Cup rebuild

Davy Klaassen scored the second Dutch goal as the hosts enjoyed a comfortable win over struggling Spain.

Two goals in three minutes put Netherlands on course for an easy 2-0 win over Spain. Here are three points on Tuesday's friendly in Amsterdam.

1. Spain stung by speedy Dutch start

Goals in the opening 16 minutes from Stefan de Vrij and Davy Klaassen were easily enough for the Netherlands to defeat a still out-of-sorts Spain side. Neither team impressed over much after that; the Dutch were happy enough to hold onto their deserved early lead while the visitors huffed, puffed and made the odd...

Brazil not ready for Copa America yet but impress with win over Chile

Our football experts discuss Brazil's eight-game winning streak since the 2014 World Cup with Dunga at the helm.

LONDON -- Unless you were vacationing at the International Space Station last summer, you will remember just how Jorge Sampaoli's Chile was one of the sensations of the 2014 World Cup. They acquired that status by running rings around Spain in Rio and pretty much confirming the end of La Furia Roja's dominance.

Yet Alexis Sanchez and co almost caused a much bigger upset when only the crossbar in the dying minutes of extra time prevented them from dumping hosts Brazil on a dramatic afternoon in...

England vs. Italy may be a friendly but it remains crucial for Roy Hodgson

England manager Roy Hodgson says in-form forward Danny Welbeck is among a host of names who will be unavailable for Tuesday's friendly with Italy due to injury.

Perspiration dripped from Roy Hodgson's forehead as he delivered his verdict on England's 2-1 loss to Italy in Manaus, their opening match of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. But he was not sweating on suffering a defeat.

The Amazonian heat was oppressive for fans and journalists. His players' drop in energy levels in the second half was wholly understandable considering the 84.2 degree Fahrenheit temperature and 88 percent humidity, but the English had taken heart from a spirited performance. There...

The 21-year-old's rise to prominence -- remember he wasn't even in the first XI for Tottenham at the start of the season -- has been extraordinary. Now he and the people around him must guard against the inevitable...
