ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop sifts through all the latest transfer rumours surrounding N'Golo Kante, Callum Wilson and many more in Transfer Rater.

U.S. defense shows its inexperience as Robinson and Saief struggle on the left

TAMPA, Fla. -- For much of Dave Sarachan's time in charge of the United States men's national team, the focus has been on how to generate a more consistent attack. Heading into Thursday's friendly with Colombia, the U.S. had scored just eight goals in its last eight games.

But in the 4-2 defeat to Los Cafeteros, it was the U.S. defense that furrowed more brows and caused more heads to shake. From the opening whistle, Colombia decided it would test the left side of the U.S. defense, manned by left-back...
