(AP) — Jozy Altidore had a hat trick to lead an impressive comeback Wednesday, with the U.S. scoring all of its goals in the second half to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 4-3 in Sarajevo and extend its record winning streak to 12 games.
Altidore has scored in five straight games, a first for a U.S. player, and also had an assist on Eddie Johnson‘s goal. It was the first time the U.S. has come back to win a game in Europe, and gives the Americans two victories over top-15 teams during their winning streak after a 4-3 victory over No. 2 Germany on June 2 that started the run.
“It feels great,” Altidore said. “More than anything, as a team, we win another game. Our confidence is high.”
