Well, it could not have gone much ruder for the USMNT in Sunday night's Copa America Centenario draw. To wit:
They got the obvious tough draw out of the pots, and arguably the second-toughest out of the higher CONMEBOL pot. Of course, that's not to say they can't advance from it. Anyway, things went about as bad for Mexico (Uruguay, Panama, Venezuela). Woof.
