It says something that near the end of the United States men’s national team’s 1-0 loss to Jamaica in a Wednesday friendly, I hesitated to make a joke about calling up the U-20 team.

I didn’t know if people would realize I was kidding.

[ RECAP: USMNT 0-1 Jamaica ]

This was the worst performance of the Gregg Berhalter era, albeit with most stars missing from the U.S. roster.

Starting XI

Zack Steffen -- 5 -- Wasn’t going to do anything on the goal, but what was with the cavalier play to start the match?

Tim Ream (Off 59') -- 5 -- Fighting to rediscover his form following a miserable season at Fulham.

Matt Miazga (Off 72') -- 6 -- Bailed his men out a few times.

Omar Gonzalez -- 7 -- If Wednesday was any sign, Toronto FC is getting a wise, fit center back.

Antonee Robinson (Off 80') -- 6 -- Ran out of gas in the second half, but buzzed up and down the left in the first half.

Cristian Roldan (Off 66') -- 4 -- More of the same in an U.S. shirt, lots of industry but little in threat.

Wil Trapp -- 4 -- He was out there. We promise. After 15 caps, what’s his standout performance to date?

Jackson Yueill (Off 59') -- 5 -- Unspectacular, but there had to be a lot of nerves on debut. Glad to see the Quakes man get the chance.

Paul Arriola (Off 72') -- 4 -- As rough a match as you’ll see from a player of his experience and quality.

Djordje Mihailovic -- 4 -- His heavy touch in the box at the death was endemic of his team’s night.

Josh Sargent -- 4 -- Credit to him for battling to the final whistle, but this was very much a night for learning from and growing through struggles for the 19-year-old.


Nick Lima (On 59') -- 6 -- The USMNT was better when he stepped into the fray.

Jonathan Amon (On 59') -- 6 -- Lively on the left.

Duane Holmes (On 66') -- 7 -- If there were really three Gold Cup roster slots available and Holmes didn’t have a hold on one already, he should now. Dynamic, clean, great vision. Could’ve had two assists.

Joe Gyau (On 72') -- n/a -- Good to see him back out there.

Cameron Carter-Vickers (On 72') -- n/a -- Pretty fortunate we’re not giving numbers for cameos. Rough.

Daniel Lovitz (On 80') -- n/a -- Bubble?
