Uruguay’s run of five straight wins came to an end after they were held to a 0-0 draw by the United States in an international friendly in Kansas City on Sunday.

Diego Godin saw DeAndre Yedlin’s effort removed from the line when Diego Alonso’s side started well, and on the other hand, Jesus Ferreira had an effort by Fernando Muslera.

FC Dallas striker Ferreira continued to look sharp in the first half, however, he was unable to find the opening goal before the break.

Christian Pulisic fired outside and Darwin Nunez hit something high just past Sean Johnson’s left post when he started in the second half.

The USA goalkeeper then pretended to be great to prevent Nunez from getting too close as Uruguay looked to be the likely winners.

They should have done so at half-time, but substitute Edinson Cavani cut off an open goal in a mysterious manner after being frustrated by Nunez.
