US fades in 3-2 loss at Chile, extends winless streak to 5
RANCAGUA, Chile (AP) — Mark Gonzalez scored in the 66th and 75 minutes to lead Chile to a 3-2 win over the United States in an international friendly Wednesday that sent the Americans to their first five-game winless streak since 2007.
The 27th-ranked Americans led 2-1 at halftime with goals by Brek Shea in the sixth minute and Jozy Altidore in the 31st either side of Roberto Gutierrez’s 10th-minute equalizer.
With the defeat to Chile, the United States has lost three straight games for the first time since late 2009 and early 2010, and they have one victory in nine matches since beating Ghana in their World Cup opener last June.
Both teams were missing nearly all their Europe-based players because the match was not on a FIFA fixture date.
