US Men’s Team defeat Guyana, 4-0

The United States men’s national team opened up its Gold Cup participation with a 4-0 victory over outmatched Guyana as Tyler Boyd scored twice, while Paul Arriola and Gyasi Zardes each scored. It was the national team’s first competitive match under new coach Gregg Berhalter, and things took a while to get going. Fielding a starting lineup that has never played together in a game, it took a while to gel as expected, but in the end it was a result that will do the job in the standings but not enough for fans who have doubts after poor form in recent friendlies.
