The U.S. men’s national team featured a few bright spots in Wednesday’s 2-1 loss to Serbia with Cade Cowell shining brightest at Banc of California Stadium.
Cowell delivered a strong 72 minutes in the USMNT’s 2-1 loss to Serbia, creating several offensive opportunities in the match. The 19-year-old’s lively showing on the left wing helped him earn SBI USMNT Man of the Match honors for the first time this year.
Luck wasn’t on Cowell’s side in the match as the San Jose Earthquakes forward struck the post twice in the second half. Still, Cowell ran rampant against the Serbian defenders for his performance, creating two opportunities, winning two duels, and having four total shots.
Cowell came close to registering his first USMNT assist in the first half after his low cross found Brandon Vazquez in the box. However, Vazquez’s low drive veered wide of Djordje Petrovic’s net, keeping the score level at 0-0.
With the USMNT down 2-1 early in the second half, Cowell called his own number in the 58th minute after a Serbian defensive breakdown. His low shot hit the right post before his later follow-up struck the left post and went wide.
Cowell edged out Alex Zendejas, Brandon Vazquez, and Gabriel Slonina for Man of the Match honors.
What did you think of Cowell’s performance? Do you expect him to build off his positive start for Saturday’s match vs. Colombia?
