US Answers Belizean Call for Humiliation in Gold Cup Opener

I call on our national team to not only beat the United States but to humiliate the United States. It is your responsibility. It is your task.

Ruperto Vincente, Head of Belize Soccer Federation

With tiny Caribbean nation Belize playing in its first Gold Cup and opening against the U.S. in Portland, the head of its Soccer Federation issued a bold challenge to humiliate the US.  His message did not go on deaf ears, it was just the American players who took it to heart beating Belize 6-1 sparked by Chris Wondolowski first half hat trick.  Landon Donovan also scored his 52nd international goal, adding to the two goals he scored against Guatemala.

In its last two matches against Belize and Guatemala, the US has outscored their opponents 12-1.
