Aaron Long scores two for USA
June 22, 2019

Aaron Long scored twice for USA in its 6:0 trashing of Trinidad and Tobago in the Gold Cup. Those are his first two goals for his country. The first came on a header in the 41st minute. The US poured it on in the second half, and Long added his second from close range in injury time. Believe it or not, according to statistician Paul Carr, this is the first time in the history of US soccer that a defender scored twice in one game.
