U.S. men’s national team beats Scotland, 5-1, behind Landon Donovan hat trick

What a performance by the U.S. men’s national team in a 5-1 friendly win Saturday against Scotland in front of 44,438 in Jacksonville.

Landon Donovan scored three goals (3′, 60′, 65′, and also hit the post) to up his international goal total to 49. The best goal of the night actually went to Michael Bradley, who had a real beauty in the 11th minute. Jermaine Jones was involved in the buildup to several goals and had his own in the 70th minute.

The U.S. actually scored all the goals in this one as Scotland got on the board through a Geoff Cameron own goal

Jurgen Klinsmann‘s fluid 4-3-2-1 formation looked pretty solid, without an injured Clint Dempsey don’t forget. We’ll see how things look against Brazil on Wednesday.

What did you think of the game? How about those new jerseys?
