Russia 2 – United States 2 (International Friendly, November 14, 2012) The Russian took the lead when a giveaway from Danny Williams lead to a quick strike from Fyodor Smolov on his international debut. The Americans equalised in the 76th minute through a brilliant volley from Michael Bradley. The Russians won a debatably penalty with six minutes remaining and Roman Shirokov fired his spot-kick past Howard. Against the odds the Americans levelled in injury time through a deflected shot from Mikkel Diskerud.
