COLUMBUS, Ohio (March 29, 2016) – The U.S. Men’s National Team notched an emphatic 4-0 victory against Guatemala in front of 20,624 Tuesday night at MAPFRE Stadium. With the win, the U.S. moves into second place in CONCACAF Semifinal Round World Cup Qualifying Group C, with seven points from four matches.

Dominant from start to finish, Clint Dempsey opened the scoring and tallied his 14th World Cup Qualifying goal for the MNT in the 12th minute. Geoff Cameron added a second off a Michael Bradley free kick in the 35th minute. Graham Zusi and Jozy Altidore recorded second half goals while Brad Guzan made two saves to earn a clean sheet in a comfortable 4-0 win.

The USA resumes World Cup Qualifying, Sept. 2 away at St. Vincent and the Grenadines before returning home to Jacksonville, Florida to face Trinidad & Tobago on Sept. 6 in its last Semifinal Round qualifier.

Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Clint Dempsey (Gyasi Zardes), 12th minute:
After winning possession at midfield, Geoff Cameron sent a measured ball over the top which deflected off of Gyasi Zardes and fell perfectly for Dempsey. The veteran MNT forward one-timed his effort, catching Paulo Motta wrong-footed to open the scoring. With the goal, Dempsey moves into sole possession of the MNT’s all-time World Cup Qualifying goals record with 14. USA 1, GUA 0 (SEE GOAL)

USA – Geoff Cameron (Michael Bradley), 35th minute: After Bobby Wood won a free kick about 25 yards from goal, MNT captain Michael Bradley served up a beautiful free kick just outside the six-yard box. Geoff Cameron broke loose from his mark to head home inside the left post to double the lead. USA 2, GUA 0 (SEE GOAL)

USA – Graham Zusi (Gyasi Zardes), 46th minute: The MNT wasted no time looking for more goals after the break. DeAndre Yedlin threaded Gyasi Zardes into the box on the right, and the LA Galaxy man slipped the ball across to Graham Zusi, where the Sporting KC attacker collected and tucked his effort inside the left post. USA 3, GUA 0

USA – Jozy Altidore (Clint Dempsey), 90th minute: Altidore did well to track back and dispossess a Guatemala defender of the ball in his own half. Dempsey collected the loose ball and surged forward into the Guatemala area where he put a move on a trailing defender and los Chapines goalkeeper Paulo Botta before teeing up Altidore, who was making a late run, to lace a hard-hit strike into the upper left corner of the goal. USA 4, GUA 0 FINAL

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
GUA – Brad Guzan, 79th minute: Marco Pappa collected the ball at midfield and tried to thread a through pass for Carlos Ruiz that was broken up by the U.S. backline. The ball fell for Jean Marquez, who saw his low blast well held by Guzan.

Despite Age, Pulisic Making Positive Impression on Klinsmann

17-year-old midfielder Christian Pulisic has made quite a splash to begin 2016.

In January, the Hersey, Pennsylvania native made his Bundesliga debut for Borussia Dortmund. In February, he made his first start for the German powerhouse, followed by his record-setting USA debut in March when he became the youngest player at 17 years 193 days to appear in a World Cup Qualifier for the U.S. MNT.

With two weeks to spare in April, Pulisic achieved another milestone when he scored his first professional goal and played his first full match in Dortmund’s 3-0 victory against Hamburger SV on April 17.

“It’s a real memorable moment for Christian Pulisic,” U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann told ussoccer.com. “When you score your first goal for your professional team, it really means a lot. You’ll always remember that moment and it’s special.”

Pulisic did well to get unmarked as he entered the Hamburg box and received a quick pass to the goalkeeper’s right. Showing poise, he took one touch with his left foot and blasted a low right-footed shot from 12 yards out inside the near post to spur Dortmund to a crucial three points as they chase Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga title. In doing so, he became the youngest non-German born player to score in Bundesliga history at 17 years, 6 months and 30 days old.

A product of U.S. Soccer Development Academy club PA Classics, Pulisic has appeared in seven Bundesliga matches and three Europa League matches for Dortmund to date, including starts in each of Die Schwarzgelben’s past two matches.

“He’s very young, breaking into the squad of the first team at Borussia Dortmund and playing with the Under-19 there as well,” Klinsmann - a former Bundesliga player and manager - stated. “Getting that experience now and getting the feeling that he can compete with the older guys, it gives him a big boost confidence-wise. The fact that he’s in Dortmund in a very intense environment is very helpful because they put him in line right away.”

Pulisic, a product of U.S. Soccer Development Academy Club PA Classics, has long represented the United States in youth competition, including the 2015 U-17 World Cup in Chile last summer where he captained the side. This year, he made a quick jump to the senior team and became the youngest U.S. player to appear in a World Cup qualifier when he debuted against Guatemala on March 29 in Columbus.

“With the statements he sends out there – scoring his first goal for Dortmund, starting a game in the Bundesliga, getting valuable minutes in that very intense environment – he sends messages out toward what happens with the National Team as well,” Klinsmann added. “We are just weeks away from Copa America Centenario, the biggest competition in the United States since the 1994 World Cup.”

With the Copa America Centenario roster due in May and the tournament set to begin June 3, Pulisic has a real chance to continue his monthly accolades through the first half of 2016.

“He makes himself a case, similar to other players who are trying to get on the right track now, trying to perform with their club teams and he knocks at the door breaking into the 23-man roster for the Copa America,” Klinsmann said.

From the Mixed Zone: Post-Game Quotes from USA-Guatemala

MNT players talked in the post-game mixed zone about the response in the USA's 4-0 win against Guatemala on March 29 in Columbus, Ohio.

U.S. MNT captain MICHAEL BRADLEY
“It didn’t take much explaining to realize what was at stake. I talked yesterday about the need for every guy to understand that at different times throughout these cycles you’re going to play a game where everything’s on the line—where if you lose you’re done. And that can’t scare you. You’ve got to have guys who embrace that challenge, who know when those moments come that’s what it’s all about. For tonight we dealt with it well. We had guys respond in a big way.”

U.S. MNT forward CLINT DEMPSEY
“I thought we showed a lot of heart. We showed a lot of character by dealing with a pressure situation. We showed our pride. You've got to do that if want to make it to the World Cup. You've got to show that you want it, and we showed that we wanted it."

“If you’re not qualifying for the World Cup, that’s a major step backwards. You’ve got to look within yourself, man—how bad you want it? How bad do you want to go to the World Cup? How bad do you want to continue progressing the game in the States? You’ve got to put that on your shoulders. You’ve got to represent your country with pride and I thought the boys did that tonight.”

U.S. MNT midfielder KYLE BECKERMAN

On the response of the team after a loss in Guatemala City:
“It was a huge response from us. We knew we had to do better from last game and it demanded a response that we had to put on today and we had to go get that win. As for the effort and all the intensity and the aggression that we put in today was something we talked about the past couple of days. We talked about it and then we went out and did it.”

On the pressure faced by the team:
“I think there was pressure, but it’s nothing that we haven’t been in before. We talked about past qualifying rounds where we’d been in similar situations. It was just about going out and executing and showing aggression and intensity and finishing our chances. That’s what we did tonight.”

On the atmosphere in Columbus:
“The support was huge tonight. The grounds crew had the field looking perfect. The fans had the energy, and we wanted to really try to keep them involved as much as we could in the game, especially early on. We wanted to have the aggression, the intensity, get chances and make sure we were in Guatemala’s end. We knew they had our back and they would keep pushing us on, and that’s what they did all game. I was glad we could give them four goals.”

On how experience factored into the team’s performance:
“A lot of us felt we’ve been here before. We just have to stand up and go get it. Last game we didn’t like, so we wanted to make it better and get back on track for World Cup Qualifying. It felt good. We were all there and had each other’s back and were all ready to step up and get the job done tonight.”

U.S. MNT midfielder GRAHAM ZUSI

On the team’s performance versus Guatemala:
“We knew that the game down in Guatemala wasn’t indicative of how we like to play. What I think you saw tonight is our MO. That’s the kind of soccer we like to play—aggressive mentality, always on the forefront, put them under enormous amounts of pressure and scoring goals. Really we wanted to right that ship and come out here. I think we were able to do that tonight.”

U.S. MNT midfielder ETHAN FINLAY

On what the result means to the team:
“We need the three points and that’s what we got. I think, as Jurgen said, we put ourselves back in the driver’s seat and we control our own destiny. There are two games to go, and I don’t think we are going to be satisfied being second in the group. We still have aspirations on winning the group and going into the Hex on a good note.”

On his performance against Guatemala:
“I think with the style we played tonight – more of a 4-3-3 – and having more wide guys definitely benefits my game and my strengths. It’s always tough to come into a game like that and make a difference. I’ve been able to do that a little bit in the past. Tonight I was able to create a couple of chances, but more importantly, we got a great win tonight and I’m happy for the guys.”

U.S. MNT midfielder CHRISTIAN PULISIC

On his first appearance for the senior team:
"It's exactly what I expected; very, very physical. It was a good game. It gives me confidence. I'm going to try and stay grounded and keep doing what I'm doing and become the best player I can."
