USMNT vs. Grenada goal, scores: Jesus Ferreira has scored four goals as a successful US tour

The United States men’s team has begun defending their Concacaf Nations League title with a 5-0 side win over Grenada on Friday night. Jesus Ferreira, looking to be the first to beat USMNT at the 2022 World Cup, built a team record with four goals to support his case, even opponents.

The red, white and blue, who are playing their final game on American soil in the calendar year, defeated the visitors 25-3 in a game that sometimes looks more like scrimmage than the official team of Gregg Berhalter.

Surprisingly, it took the United States 43 minutes to win despite dominating the ball with luck, Ferreira who was alert finished inside the box.

With a lot of flaws in front of goals since late, Ferreira was able to change the unsightly form with a successful game so that, despite his large numbers, he met the team at number 170 in the world. He is the fifth player to score four goals in a US game, joining Archie Stark (1925), Aldo Donelli (1934), Joe-Max Moore (1993) and Landon Donovan (2003).

With key players like Christian Pulisic et Tyler Adams retired, the US was able to control the running of the game overnight. The visitors didn’t get close to scoring, shooting xG of 0.10 in three shots. The US finished with xG of 4.08 in its 25th shot. The Americans also had 66.6 percent, did not give a corner and saw Matt Turner not have to save once on goal.

The players extended their unbeaten run to 26 games, comparing history from 2013-15.

Americans are now turning to statistics that could be a tough test Tuesday when they face El Salvador on March 2.

US will play in the World Cup in November after failing to qualify for the 2018 edition. USMNT meets Wales on Nov. 21, England on Nov. 25 (day after Thanksgiving) by Iran on Nov. 29.

USMNT Player settings

(GK) Matt Turner

90 He was never tested when Grenada fired three shots and set zero at the target. One of the simplest games that could be wearing a national team shirt.

7

(DEF) Antonee Robinson

60 He only made one chance but it doesn’t matter because white paper is so important. It’s good to see that Robinson can be very careful, he just blows up when needed.

7

(DEF) Aaron Long

45 There was no need to do much with Carter-Vickers to be the most protective of the night. The show was in full swing in the first half but was later eliminated as Berhalter continued to try out his middle two.

7

(DEF) Cameron Carter-Vickers

90 He was playing in front of him, making five appearances in the game and winning many of his air battles. While not one of the defensive challenges he would face, this was a positive change from Carter-Vickers’ move to Celtic earlier in the day. 8

(DEF) Reggie Cannon

90 He rode well, collecting three routes that look like Cannon is heading to the World Cup. With all its versatility, it is best to be present at every event. 7

(MID) Kellyn Acosta

90 He directed the game from the middle. Acosta was everywhere in the game, helping the United States wear Grenada until the ball hit the back of the net. On a day when many regular midwives rested, Acosta shone. 9

(MID) Luca de la Torre

71 Was this a de la Torre party? Even without support, he had a good game to help improve and push speed against the Spice Boys. It would be important for de la Torre to be successful and strong teams but it is good to see that potential exists. 8

(MID) Weston McKennie

45 They weren’t in the game when the goals started, but a big part of helping put Grenada down, creating two chances and making sure the team kept the ball in the first half. 7

(FWD) Jordan Morris

60 He had one big chance created and missed the chance to attack a few. After USMNT turned the game into a trial, Morris did not join other players who could have wasted a few minutes on him. 6

(FWD) Paul Arriola

90 He made the team a lot of chances as one ended up scoring a goal for fellow FC Dallas Ferreira. Arriola made good changes in the game by doing all the right things for the defensive and defensive team. 7

(FWD) Jesus Ferreira

90 How to deal with severe drought. Ferreira scored four goals when he was in the right place at the right time in almost every game to show what he is doing well for the national team. While it is difficult to get more out of the game because of the type of opponents, there is not much that Ferreira could have done. 10

George Bello

Robinson, (’60) He did what he was asked to do in a few minutes but did nothing surprising 6
Walker Zimmerman Length, (’45) Calm as always, Zimmerman kept things as a defense after joining the game. He did not win anything in his head but he had two licenses and a barrier when he entered. 7
Brenden Aaronson de la Torre, (’71) It didn’t take long for him to make a mark on the game and make an assistant with his only chance he created. A sub comeo when Aaronson’s new legs really helped break Grenada. 8
Malik Tillman McKennie, (’45) A hat-trick in the United States, Tillman came in the middle of the season, played a game that showed what he could offer on the line but also showed how raw he was right away. There is nothing to worry about right now, as with polish it can be powerful. 7

Cristian Roldan

Morris, (’60) The game was just won when they won. 6
Gregg Berhalter 5 Although he did not defeat anyone needed in the first leg of the Nations League match, it was a sure victory that would give confidence to Ferreira after scoring four goals. It was tough if the team did exactly as asked and scored five shos that the gameplan was right. 9
