The United States scored early and often Tuesday night en route to a second straight shutout win in World Cup qualifying action. This time, the Americans blanked Trinidad and Tobago 4-0.
The U.S. defeated St. Vincent and the Grenadines 6-0 last week.
Veteran Jozy Altidore was the man of the match, scoring a brace (59′, 62′) in a three-minute span. The multiple-goal effort gives Altidore 16 for his career in World Cup qualifying matches, the most all-time for a Team USA player. After not playing since March, Altidore now has three goals in his last two games.
Youngster Christian Pulisic made his first career start for the U.S. national team and provided a spark as well, even assisting one of Altidore’s goals. Sacha Kljestan and Paul Arriola bookended Altidore’s scores with one goal each in the 44th and 71st minutes, respectively.
Here’s a look at all four goals from Tuesday’s win.
