WASHINGTON (AP) Weston McKennie got the U.S. off to a record-setting start against Cuba in the Americans' CONCACAF Nations League debut.

McKennie scored 32 seconds into the game and had the fastest hat trick from the kickoff in U.S. history, helping the Americans overwhelm Cuba 7-0 on Friday night.

"If I could have written the game up, it would have been exactly like this. Score early, score many goals early, and then cruise," U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter said. "That was important, so I think we saved ourselves. I think we'll be fit, ready to go against Canada."
