Beginning by saying, “It’s time for leaders to step up,” and then branding those leaders as “supposed,” Alexi Lalas lashed into the United States men’s national team during an MLS telecast on Sunday.

The United States Women’s National Team returned to form in the Tournament of Nations on Sunday night, when it erased a two-goal deficit in the game’s final minutes to beat Brazil, 4-3.
