Christian Pulisic opened the scoring for the US after just four minutes before Oscar Opazo pulled "La Roja" level in a poor friendly game in Houston.
Final Score | United States 1-1 Chile, Friendly International
Gregg Berhalter's winning streak ends with a draw against Chile, in which the American team showed a lack of initiative and control as the South American side dominated the bulk of the game.
The USMNT were dealt a blow when Christian Pulisic had to leave the game before the end of the first half due to an injury.
Chile showed more initiative over the 90 minutes, but their lack of goal puts Reinaldo Rueda job as La Roja coach on the line in their road to the Copa America and their quest to win it again.
Thankyou very much for following the action through AS.com, until next time, goodbye!
