DeAndre Yedlin outraced Leo Messi, the closest thing to a USA highlight

There were precious few things for the United States to feel good about following their 4-0 loss to Argentina in the Copa America semifinals. They never threatened the goal and had just one shot, that was probably more of a pass and were outplayed from whistle to whistle.

But there was at least one moment that could fill USMNT fans with a little pride: DeAndre Yedlin outracing Leo Messi for a loose ball.

This came with the United States already trailing 3-0, but still! That's Seattle's favorite soccer son showing off some real speed against a world-class opponent on a huge stage. No, it's not really something to build off of. But it was kinda cool.
