Beasley nearly finished a hat trick in 59th minute, but Minoso made a fine save. Ching then cherry-picked a goal, scoring on a close-range header to make it 4-1. Altidore added a late goal in 88th minute off a pass from Clint Dempsey.

But it was still not over, and in the last minute of regulation time Olney native Onyewu headed home a fine cross from former D.C. United midfielder Freddy Adu.

Jose Fernando Torres, who plays for Mexican club Pachuca, made his U.S. team debut in the 68th minute as a substitute. Only last week did the Texan decide to cast his lot in with the U.S. team rather than Mexico.

“We are very excited he chose to play for the United States,” Bradley said.

The U.S. team is now 11-3-4 at RFK, including a 4-1-1 in World Cup qualifying.
