ROAD TO THE FINAL
The U.S. Men’s National Team finished atop Group A of Concacaf Nations League A and advanced to the final four after posting a 3-1-0 record in matches against Cuba and Canada.
Weston McKennie, Jordan Morris and Josh Sargent paced six different U.S. scorers with three goals apiece. McKennie and Morris put their names in history books against Cuba on Oct. 11 in Washington, D.C, with McKennie recording the USMNT’s fastest hat trick from the start of a match just 13 minutes in, while Morris scored a goal and provided a record-tying three assists.
In the semifinal against Honduras, an 89th minute diving header from second-half substitute Jordan Siebatcheu made the difference in the 1-0 shutout victory.
