Two players who came up together in Dallas-area youth soccer combined to score the U.S. Men’s National Team’s opener against Jamaica.
After a long-ball down the right wing to the sprinting Reggie Cannon, the FC Dallas right back played a one-time cross into the box. Jozy Altidore held off his defender, Michael Hector and the ball continued towards the late run of Weston McKennie. The Dallas native took one touch to control and another touch to fire past Andre Blake to put the U.S. ahead, 1-0, in the ninth minute.
