The Starting XI

Captain Michael Bradley gathers the team for a pre-match huddle.

At the 45th minute Brek Shea sends a free kick up and over the wall to score and put the U.S. ahead, 0-1 just before the end of the half.

Klinsmann works in subs to start the second half.

Altidore gets a red card — at 68th minute — getting sent off and leaving the U.S. to play the rest of the match with 10 men. It’s his first ever red card in 80 USMNT appearances.

Holding onto a 0-1 lead into the 75th minute …

But the Swiss find a way to score.

Good effort by the U.S.

Alexi Lalas and some not too subtle post-match commentary.

The final — 

NOTES:

Michael Bradley is closing in on 100 national team caps. He captured his 95th vs. Switzerland; Clint Dempsey was not with the team in Zurich after having suffered a hamstring injury before the Denmark match; Jordan Morris captured his second cap playing for the senior team.
