Los Angeles, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 10th Jun, 2021 ) :The United States completed their preparations for next month's Gold Cup tournament with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Costa Rica on Wednesday.
Goals from Brenden Aaronson, Daryl Dike, Reggie Cannon and Gio Reyna secured a comfortable win for Gregg Berhalter's side at the Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.
The new-look side delivered a composed performance, dominating possession throughout and barely allowing Costa Rica a sight of goal.
Dike then made it 2-0 three-minutes from half-time, the powerful striker who spent last season on loan at English side Barnsley beating the offside trap from McKenzie's pass and tucking away a low finish.
Second half substitute Reyna then won a penalty after being chopped down by Keysher Fuller in the area, and the Borussia Dortmund teenager promptly got to his feet to convert the spot-kick, coolly sending Leonel Moreira the wrong way.
The win continues an impressive recent run of form for the US, with Berhalter's side having won 11 of their last 13 games since late 2019.
