USA 0-0 Uruguay

A bright first half, then overshadowed by a dull second half where the constant changes interrupted the flow of he game. Uruguay had the better chances but a draw is probably a fair result.

That's it.... the final whistle sounds and it ends 0-0 between the US and Uruguay.


Nuñez feeds Cavani and the United striker screws the ball wide with the goal gaping. A mystery why the Benfica man squared the ball. 


Cavani robs the ball but Nuñez is shrouded out as the fourth official confirms 4 minutes of added time


Half chance for Rossi but Zimmermann is alert and intercepts just as the Uruguay player shapes to shoot.

Musah makes way for De La Torre

Final US change as De La Torre gets ready to make an entrance.

Fede Valverde carded for clipping Adams


The ball falls to Zimermann and the defender heads straight at Muslera. Coates touches the ball with his hand as he intervenes but he Mexican referee decides that no penalty kick is the result of the play.

The second half has lacked the sheen and spark of the first 45' with tiredness, heat and the constant changes conditioning factors.


15' remaining here in Kansas City and still no breakthrough for either side with goal scoring chances very much a premium in this second half.

Play is held up as the players take a water break

Seems to be some issue about the number of substitutes Uruguay have made. Six is the stipulated number for these international friendly games with La Celeset having made seven.

More changes:

Uruguay: Rosso on for Gorriaran and Pellistri on for Varela.


The initiative has now swung Uruguay's way with the US changes not seeming to have made any immediate impact. The tempo of the contest has also dipped ever so slightly too as tiredness kicks in.


The US escape as Oliveira hits the ball at Johnson from close range. Just over 25' of the contest remaining.

Arambarri off too for Uruguay with Cavani his replacement

Changes for USA

Wright on for Ferreira


Best chance of the night falls to Uruguay and it's Fernando Gorriarán who blazes the ball over the bar with the goal beckoning after a fine assist from Nuñez.

Better spell now from La Celeste.


Decent strike from Darwin Nuñez as the striker catches the ball on the half volley but fails to secure sufficient accuracy and notjing for Johnson to worry about. 


Decent effort from Pulisic as the Chelsea player screws his shot wide. The US arguably now top now as Uruguay seem to have faded somewhat.

Oliveira on for Godin (URU)

Free for the US which Pulisic takes and the Chelsea man just overhits the delivery and the ball goes wide for a goal kick.

Weah, Long and McKennie are the three players who made way...

Second half is underway..

Aaronson, Palmer Brown and Aariola are on ...

The subs from both teams are warming up and it looks like the US are set to make a series of changes


Stalemate in Kansas City at the interval.

The whistle sounds and it's been a bright half despite the lack of goals. Both teams enjoying decent spells.


Adams shoots from just outside the box and despite the decent effort, it's easy for Muslera to gather.


Varela has looked excellent for Uruguay tonight and has been a source of danger on the right flank.

2 minutes of time to be added.


Johnson is in trouble and is forced to slice the ball away as the US struggle to get the ball out from the back. Corner for the visitors and the US clear.


Game lacking a little shape now as both sides struggle to get any consistent passage of possession together.

Five minutes of the half remain.


Wonderful play from Nuñez as he skips by two US defenders and creates an opening for the US team which they are unable to capitalise on.

Coates replaces the Atleti defender....first change of the night.


José Giménez is on the floor and seems to have developed a muscular problem as Coates warms up for the Atletico Madrid man.


Weah once again cuts in from the right and this time wins a corner as his effort is deflected.


Tim Weah goes close with a right footed effort from outside the box but Muslera can watch that one drift by his post. The Celeste keeper playing his 132nd game for his nation tonight.


We're back underway again as Uruguay move the ball around patiently.


Pulisic celebrating his 50th appearance for the USMNT tonight as the game is held up for the players to hydrate.


Edging towards the 30 minute mark and despite no goals from the action, it's a bright contest between two teams full of confidence.


Ugarte has a go from the edge of the box and forces Johnson to tip the ball over the bar.


More sustained pressure from the US as the men in white now lay siege on the Uruguay goal with La Celeste looking stretched at the back.


Still no way through for either side as Ferreira fires a rasping shot which is well saved by Muslera.


Big penalty appeal from Weah as Gimenez appears to handle the ball. Nothing doing for the Mexican match official.


Good play from Uruguay as Nuñez almost connects with a spectacular overhead effort. The visitors now on top.

After tonight's friendly game, the US play two matches in the CONCACAF Champions League and Uruguay face Jamaica in a friendly on 11 June. 


Danger from Uruguay as Varela fizzes the ball across the US goalmouth. No player in sky blue on hand to supply a finsih.


Bright start from both teams but still nothing to bother either goalkeeper

Way more noise being created by the local fans tonight compared to what we saw for the US-Morocco game... as things stand Fans at Kansas City>Cincinnati 


A quick look around reveals a pretty full stadium. A handful of empty seats but looks better than the 80% occupation that was earlier anticipated.

Plenty of noise being generated by the US fans with expectation high for an entertaining contest.
