Had exceedingly little to do, with Aron Johannsson's effort the Americans' best chance. That was cleared off the line by his defenders.
The other center back wasn't quite as hard-nosed as his partner, Kucher, but dealt with issues well.
Got into the match early with an excellent fifth-minute clearance and didn't falter the rest of the way, intercepting a dangerous Jermaine Jones pass among others.
The left back was beaten by Geoff Cameron on a handful of occasions, and the few U.S. chances came from his side. Made way in the 80th minute.
Clumsily fouled Brek Shea and was given a yellow card, but few blemishes against him other than that.
Set up the opening goal and troubled the U.S. back line on several occasions. The Americans weren't too upset to see him make way at halftime.
The captain played his role well, helping his club dominate the midfield and spring a few attacks.
Another player the U.S. couldn't beat, putting in a nice game for his country.
Absolutely tormented the United States, exploiting the inexperienced back line and getting in behind over and over again. In truth, excellent preparation for the defenders to see a top-class player coming at them.
Not quite as difficult to manage as Yarmolenko but a dangerous threat nevertheless. Should've had his name on the score sheet.
Was able to get by Cameron in both the 18th and 24 minutes but couldn't keep the enthusiasm with which he started the match.
The veteran goalkeeper was his typical self, trying to control a wayward defense and making a few excellent saves in the process. Left out to dry on both goals and nearly stopped both of them.
He's back getting minutes with a club team, but didn't exactly appear crisp. He and Brooks seemed lost on numerous occasions and it's doubtful Klinsmann will bother to bring him in again.
He was the best of the U.S. defenders, which was saying little, but when he got forward his passing was poor, sending several crosses to vacant areas.
Struggled mightily in defense, as he often has in the U.S. kit. Wearing the new all-white one was no different. While he can get forward well, he's a defensive liability - a bad problem for a left back to have.
It's harsh to say the first two goals were on his young shoulders, but it's naive to say his mistakes didn't play a part. He had a few good clearances but didn't look ready for the international level.
The Nantes player's second half was one of the few positive things for the Americans. He made a few things happen, passed well and put in good set pieces, some of the only threatening moments for the U.S.
Several poor giveaways from Kljestan led to Ukraine scoring chances, and he didn't track runs well either. It could be forgiven if he provided anything in attack. He didn't.
Had a brief moment of creativity when playing forward and was better than Castillo when he slid back to defend. A solid outing.
Fears about Dempsey's form will continue to build after this game. He didn't create much and didn't take advantage of the small chances he did get to score.
Didn't get involved but hardly had the chance. Probably should've done better to get a first-half header on target but other than that was starved for the ball.
Would've hoped for a brighter cameo as he looks to get into Klinsmann's World Cup team. Didn't provide the spark he has in previous matches but wasn't awful.
Excellent volley on the corner kick was cleared off the line in the 86th minute. His next effort was less impressive, but he didn't do anything to down grade his stock.
