Three goals in each half highlighted by the first tournament tallies for Indiana Vassilev, Andrew Carleton and Bryan Reynolds paced the U.S. attack, which dominated much of the game. A Cuba own goal by Miguel Coll and second-half strikes from Zyen Jones and Tim Weah - each player's second of the competition - rounded out the USA's offensive barrage.

The U.S. Men's National Team used a hat trick from Clint Dempsey as well as goals from Sebastian Lletget, Michael Bradley and Christian Pulisic to earn an emphatic 6-0 Final Round World Cup Qualifying win against Honduras at Avaya Stadium. The victory gives the U.S. its first three points of the Hexagonal and pushes the team into fourth place, just one point behind Tuesday's opponents Panama for CONCACAF's third and final automatic World Cup berth.

The U.S. was clinical in front of goal all night, converting six of the eight shots it put on target. That finishing touch told from the outset as it took the U.S. just five minutes to gain a lead when Lletget tallied his first international goal by finishing Pulisic's deflected shot at the back post. The U.S. doubled the advantage through Bradley in the 27th minute, before Pulisic slipped Dempsey in on goal to score his first in the 32nd, sending the MNT into halftime with a 3-0 advantage.

The FIFA Women’s World Ranking has a new team at the top for the first time since March 2015, with Germany back at the summit. The European champions have dethroned ranking stalwarts the USA – who now sit in second – in a table that has been shaped by an eventful three months of friendly matches and invitational tournaments.

Shock results at the recent SheBelieves Cup have done the most to end the Stars & Stripes’ reign, with the hosts losing twice to finish bottom of the standings – leading to their lowest number of points (2105) since the ranking’s inception. That has allowed Germany to leapfrog them into top spot, although the new leaders also lost ranking points at the same tournament, having been the only side to lose to the USA before eventually finishing second.
