Colombia crushed a shorthanded and overmatched United States 4-2 in a friendly in Tampa on Thursday in the latest reminder the Americans are far from threatening the world’s best.

James Rodriguez scored Colombia’s first goal in the 36th minute and set up their last as the South Americans stormed back after trailing 2-1 early in the second half.

A win or tie for the United States would have been a boost for a team which failed to qualify for the World Cup in Russia after losing to Trinidad and Tobago a year and a day ago.
