The game was expected to be an romp for the Americans and they delivered, overwhelming the Olympic newcomer.

The Americans (2-0) have won 35 straight games in the Olympics and four consecutive gold medals while Angola is looking for its first victory. The team lost its opener to Turkey by 22 points meaning African nations have only won one of their 25 games in the Olympics since Congo — formerly known as Zaire — first qualified in the 1996 Atlanta Games.

Nigeria owns the only victory, beating South Korea by four points in 2004.

Soccer: Switzerland boots player over racist tweet

A Swiss soccer player was expelled from the Olympics on Monday for his threatening and racist message on Twitter about South Koreans.

Michel Morganella “discriminated against, insulted and violated the dignity of the South Korea football team as well as the South Korean people,” Swiss Olympic team chief Gian Gilli said through a translator at a news conference.

Morganella posted the message after playing in the 2-1 loss against South Korea on Sunday. He said in the tweet that South Koreans “can go burn” and referred to them as a “bunch of mongoloids.”
