In Orlando, Florida, Gregg Berhalter’s USA showed no mercy against CONCACAF rivals Trinidad and Tobago. In their 7-0 demolition of Trinidad and Tobago in Sunday’s international friendly, the USA made history.
For the first time in its history, per Opta, the USA scored at least five goals in three consecutive matches.
In the country’s first international fixture since smashing El Salvador 6-0 in December amid the coronavirus pandemic, the United States showed no mercy.
At Exploria Stadium in Orlando, Florida, Gregg Berhalter’s USA sped out to a 4-0 lead by halftime.
Looking ahead to a busy 2021 with the inaugural CONCACAF Nations League in June, the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July, and the start of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, thanks to Jonathan Lewis, the USA needed only two minutes to open the scoring.
As he doubled the lead seven minutes later, Jesus Ferreira went from provider to scorer before Paul Arriola’s quick-fire brace put the outcome at the interval beyond doubt.
In the second half, Miles Robinson made it 5-0 in seven minutes, while Lewis and Ferreira completed their doubles as the hosts cruised within seven minutes.
Ten separate USA players, including Arriola, Lewis, and Ferreira, have scored multiple goals in one of the team’s last nine matches.
