That is not, as you might currently be thinking, a Top Gun callsign. It is, rather, the U.S.’s scoreline in its most lopsided U20 World Cup win in 24 years. The U.S. atomized New Zealand 6-0 on Thursday despite lacking four starters; three were suspended (Derrick Jones, Aaron Herrera and Cameron Carter-Vickers) and a fourth was lost for the tournament earlier in Gedion Zelalem. No matter. New Zealand looked lost in the vast craggy expanses of Mordor (sorry).
The U.S. managed six goals from six (!) different players en route to the win, setting up a quarterfinal matchup with Venezuela in the process. In the meantime, revel in each of these six while New Zealand endures the Long Walk Home.
