After defeating Chile on Monday, the United States U-20 team won its second straight game on Wednesday when it routed Bermuda 4-0.

The United States took the lead in the 27th minute when Caleb Smith sent in a cross which was tapped home by forward Andrija Novakovich for a 1-0 lead.

In the 39th minute, the U.S. team doubled its lead when Novakovich was brought down in the box by Bermuda's Jaylon Bather for a penalty.

In the 45th minute, the U.S. team continued its domination of Bermuda with San Jose's Tommy Thompson adding a third goal when he took a cross in the box and beat his defender before firing a shot past the keeper for a 3-0 lead.

The final goal came in the 85th minute off an own-goal on a corner kick for a 4-0 lead.

It was a dominating performance as expected with the United States outshooting Bermuda 26-2 with 12 shots coming on goal.

The U.S. team will now face off against Australia on Friday night.
