Today in US MNT History

As we await tonight’s potentially epic qualifier down in San Jose against Costa Rica, let’s relive a smashing US victory in US cup 2000 at RFK Stadium on this day in 2000.

The US crushed South Africa 4-0 with an A team preparing for the semifinal stage of CONCACAF qualifying which began in July.

Here is the lineup the US fielded that day in 2000

Kasey Keller

Tony Sanneh

Carlos Llamosa

Jeff Agoos

David Regis

Earnie Stewart (Steve Ralston)

Chris Armas

Claudio Reyna

Eddie Lewis (Ben Olsen)

Cobi Jones (Jason Kreis)

Brian McBride (Ante Razov)

Goals scored by Earnie Stewart, Claudio Reyna, and two by Cobi Jones lifted the US to an impressive victory.
