Big year, bigger statement: USMNT set tone for 2021 with Trinidad & Tobago trouncing


The game provided was a showcase for several talented young U.S. stars such as Jesus Ferreira, Sam Vines Jonathan Lewis and Miles Robinson, all players that will most certainly play vital roles in the Olympic qualifiers to come.


That momentum thankfully seems to be back, which is great news for the U.S. as Ferreira prepares to potentially lead the line in the upcoming Olympic qualifiers.


Paul Arriola, a USMNT regular fresh off an ACL injury, fired two goals and assisted another as links to Swansea City persist.


And Robinson, the 23-year-old Atlanta United defender that already has an MLS Best XI selection under his belt, was faultless in defense while getting a goal of his own from a diving header.


Matt Turner saved a penalty while youngsters Tanner Tessman, Daryl Dike, Aaron Herrera, George Bello and Andres Perea all earned their debuts.


Aaron Long, meanwhile, capped off a week that saw him linked to Liverpool with a commanding performance, and the list of strong showings can go on and on.
