U.S. blasts past Bosnia

 

Forward Jozy Altidore scored a hat trick to lead an impressive comeback for the U.S. men, who scored all their goals in the second half Wednesday and beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 4-3 in an international friendly at Sarajevo and extended their record winning streak to 12 games. Seattle Sounders forward Eddie Johnson had the other goal for the Americans. The world’s longest active winning streak appeared to be in jeopardy when the Americans fell behind 2-0 before halftime. But Altidore set up Johnson’s goal in the 55th minute, then scored his own four minutes later. His sublime free kick from 30 yards out curled into the top corner in the 84th to put the U.S. up 3-2 before he hit the winner in the 86th. Forward Edin Dzeko scored his second goal in the 90th for the 13th-ranked Dragons. – AP
