Spreading the Wealth

Nine different players have scored the 10 U.S. goals through four games at the Gold Cup. Until Stuart Holden became the first repeat scorer against Haiti, the first seven marked first time that seven straight goals in a Gold Cup have come from seven different players. Freddy Adu, Stuart Holden, Robbie Rogers, Charlie Davies, Santino Quaranta, Brian Ching and Davy Arnaud set the U.S. record for most different players to score in the group matches, breaking the 2007 Group Stage record of six players scoring in matches against Guatemala, Trinidad & Tobago and El Salvador. This group has also tied the record number of players to score in a single Gold Cup competition for the U.S., a mark also set in 2007.
