Colombia beat the USA, 2-1, in the penalty-kick tiebreaker after the teams played to a 2-2 tie in their Gold Cup quarterfinal match Feb. 19 in Miami. In the semifinal Feb. 23 at Qualcomm Stadium (8 pm PT), Colombia faces the winner of the Honduras-Peru quarterfinal. The USA drew first blood in the Orange Bowl clash. Brian McBrideÆs 20th minute goal, on a header, was equalized by ColombiaÆs Faustino Asprilla (23rd minute) and the teams were tied, 1-1, at halftime. Chris Armas gave the USA a 2-1 lead in the 51st minute. Colombia equalized for the second time on a spectacular 25-yard half-volley by Bedoya with nine minutes left in regulation time. In sudden-death overtime, the first 15-minute period passed without a goal. U.S. midfielder Richie Williams came closest when his shot from the edge of the penalty area hit the woodwork. Early in the second overtime period, Asprilla hit the U.S. upright on a 27-yard free kick. The Colombians had most of the final overtime period, creating several chances as the USA appeared to run out of gas. U.S. shooters in the 2-1 penalty kick shootout loss: Wynalda (missed, over crossbar) Reyna (missed, hit crossbar) Lewis (goal) Armas (saved) Olsen (saved)
