Washington, May 29 (IANS) Josh Sargent scored on his debut as a youthful United States side beat Bolivia 3-0 in an international football friendly.
Sargent, 18, marked his first senior cap with a goal on Monday, while fellow 18-year-old Timothy Weah also scored as the US secured the comfortable win over Bolivia, reports Xinhua news agency.
The 25-year-old LAFC defender Walker Zimmerman opened the scoring for the US in 37th minute when he struck in a Joe Corona's corner kick. Werder Bremen reserve Sargent then took the spotlight and doubled the advantage seven minutes after the break, finding the net with a low shot from inside the box.
Paris Saint-Germain striker Weah added a third to round out the scoring.
The United States are next in action on June 2 when they take on Ireland before traveling to face France in Lyon seven days later.
