USMNT shut down Canada; advance in Concacaf Gold Cup

The U.S. Men National Team (USMNT) continued their winning ways in Concacaf Gold Cup Group play by defeating Team Canada 1-0 in sweltering Kansas City, Kansas. Forward Shaquell “Shaq” Moore scored his first career international goal just 20 seconds after kick-off and turned out to be the match’s only goal by the final whistle.

Colorado Rapids midfielder Kellyn Acosta was in the mix as the quick goal developed in Children’s Mercy Park. Acosta took the ball off the boot of teammate Gianluca Busio and sent a swift pass out wide on the left side to a surging Sebastian Lletget.
