U-23 U.S. team blows past Cuba

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Joe Corona scored three goals and the United States beat Cuba 6-0 Thursday night in the Americans' opening game of the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament.

Juan Agudelo and Freddy Adu also had a goal apiece, and the U.S. Under-23 team also got an own goal from Cuba to lead 4-0 at 4-0 halftime.

The Americans will play Canada on Saturday night in the second of three games in the Group A round-robin tournament at LP Field, home of the NFL's Tennessee Titans.

The win was the U.S. Under-23 team's biggest margin of victory since beating Panama 7-0 on July 20, 1991.
