Android users should start with Google Now.  It's likely already built into your phone.  Simply search for "Team USA" and a full listing of scores, stats and upcoming games will appear.  Now will remember your search and keep you updated automatically about future games and scores.

iPhone users can also grab the latest scores by asking Siri.  Be sure to ask nicely.

ESPN FC is free for iPhone and Android.
