Video: USA 1 –Netherlands 2 (International Friendly Highlights)

The United States fell 2-1 to the Netherlands on Wednesday night in an international friendly.

Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt notched the hosts’ first goal from the penalty spot in the 40th minute following Jonathan Bornstein’s foul on Wesley Sneijder’s in the box.

The US was unfortunate in the 73rd as Klaas-Jan Huntelaar’s shot deflected off Bornstein’s chest to leave the already committed US goalkeeper Tim Howard with no chance of stopping it.

US captain Carlos Bocanegra headed in a consolation goal for the US in the 88th minute off DaMarcus Beasley’s 35-yard free kick.

The United States’ next match takes place on May 25th in East Hartford, CT against the Czech Republic.
