I'm finally connected. Either the U.S. squad is finally getting comfortable with each other or this El Salvador squad didn't come to play today.

This tracker is pretty bad tonight , it was alot better the other night againt Cuba anyhow i cat tell you much , for some reason the possesion indicator is not working but i am sure we are dominating that aspect we have a 1 yellow card they have 2

McBride's three-goal day boots USA into semis

www.usatoday.com

PASADENA, Calif. —

Brian McBride scored three goals in the first 21 minutes Sunday as the U.S. men's soccer team routed El Salvador 4-0 in the Gold Cup quarterfinals in front of 31,628 at the Rose Bowl.

The victory puts the USA into the second game of Wednesday night's semifinal doubleheader against Canada, the Gold Cup defending champion. Costa Rica will play South Korea in the first game.

Wednesday's winners will meet in the final, with the losers playing for third place. Both games will take place Saturday at the Rose Bowl.

McBride — who returned to action in December after missing five months with a blood disorder — is the first American to score three goals in a game since Joe-Max Moore had four against El Salvador in 1993.

McBride's three goals, a personal best, increase his international total to 18 and make him the tournament's leading scorer with four goals. The Columbus Crew forward made a penalty kick against Cuba for the only goal in a 1-0 victory.

McBride began the scoring in the ninth minute. Frankie Hejduk sent a cross from the right flank that defender Guillermo Garcia headed behind him. An unmarked McBride headed the ball from 7 yards into the upper-right corner of the net.

Two minutes later, McBride extended the USA's advantage.

Chris Armas began the play by passing to Cobi Jones, who dribbled against goal. Goalkeeper Santos Rivera came off the goal line to tip the ball behind him as Jones tripped. McBride, again unmarked, converted from 12 yards.

McBride scored his final goal in the 21st minute. After Jones forced a turnover in midfield, Ante Razov passed on the left flank to Eddie Lewis, who crossed the ball into the penalty area.

Defender Marvin Benitez almost deflected the ball, but Landon Donovan tapped it to McBride, who slid to convert a left-footed shot from 5 yards.

McBride, who left the game in the 63rd minute, had three more goals nullified by offside calls. Razov ended the scoring with a 13-yard shot in the 72nd minute.

El Salvador played with 10 men after Benitez received his second yellow card in the 64th minute.


Costa Rica-USA Final ????.....I Hope so !!!!

Wow! Four goals! That's the most since we scored four against South Africa in a friendly! :)

I was really expecting more from the Salvador side. It must be one of their off days.

Excellent result for the US. I think this is the time that McBride has scored a hat trick as a pro. As far as El Salvador I am not surprised that they lost handily. I was not expecting a 4 - 0 but 2 or 3 goal difference was in my expectations. They couldn't match the US phisically.

Now against Canada should be a very interesting match.
