ZURICH (AP) Jozy Altidore was ejected in the 68th minute for a foul and mouthing off at the referee, and the United States gave up another late goal in a 1-1 tie against Switzerland on Tuesday night.

Brek Shea put the U.S. ahead in the 45th minute, his fourth international goal and the first for the Americans on a free kick since Altidore in August 2013.

The game turned when Altidore fouled Francois Moubandje from behind, earning a yellow card. When Altidore said something to Italian referee Luca Banti, the 25-year-old forward was shown a red card.
