A 10-man U.S. men's national team lost 2-1 to Trinidad and Tobago Monday in Port of Spain, but the 2024 Copa América hosts will still compete in next summer's tournament alongside Argentina, Brazil and 13 other squads from South America and the CONCACAF region after qualifying for the tournament with a 4-2 aggregate win.
The one-goal defeat combined with last week's 3-0 victory over the Soca Warriors in the home-and-home series was enough to send the USMNT — who reached the Copa América semifinals in 2016, the last time 16 teams from the Americas competed — to the tournament, which kicks off next June.
Antonee "Jedi" Robinson had the lone U.S. goal Monday, with U.S. defender Sergiño Dest sent off later in the first half after collecting two yellow cards for dissent.
"We started the game pretty well I think," Robinson told the official broadcaster afterward. "Then obviously a moment of unprofessionalism kind of went against us." source foxsports.com
