History of WCQ in KC

Tuesday’s match will mark the USA’s third World Cup qualifier in Kansas City. On Nov. 2, 1968, Peter Millar scored three goals to lead the USA to a 6-2 victory against Bermuda in a World Cup qualifier at Municipal Stadium. Gerry Baker added two tallies and Willy Roy also chipped in with a goal. Fast forward 33 years, and this time Arrowhead Stadium played host on April 25, 2001, when U.S. defeated Costa Rica 1-0 on April 25, 2001, at Arrowhead Stadium, with Josh Wolff scoring the game’s lone goal.
