The United States Men's National Team got the result they desperately needed on Friday night, beating Cuba 7-0 in the opening game of their CONCACAF Nations League campaign.

Jordan Morris scored and tied a U.S. record with three assists, and Josh Sargent also had a goal as the 21st-ranked Americans burst to a 6-0 halftime lead against No. 179 Cuba.

United States of America were expected to ease past Cuba in the inaugural CONCACAF Nations League and the match went according to script after a dream start.

McKennie returned the favor in the ninth as Morris converted, and McKennie got his third in the 13th minute on a cross from Reggie Cannon, his sixth goal in 16 worldwide appearances.

Cuba was outmatched all game long, as it was 3-0 before the game was even 10 minutes old.

It was the fastest known hat trick ever for the USA.

Cuba managed to stop the bleeding until a stunning backheel from McKennie found Morris, whose effort was bundled over the line by an unfortunate Dario Ramos in the 37th minute before Josh Sargent curled the ball into the bottom corner for a 6-0 lead approaching half-time.

Both McKennie and Morris were replaced at the interval but captain Christian Pulisic grabbed a seventh from the penalty spot after 62 minutes.

What does it mean? The Americans play 75th-ranked Canada at Toronto on Tuesday, an important match for the hosts as they try to climb in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings and earn a spot in the hexagonal that will determine the three direct berths of the North and Central American and Caribbean region for the 2022 World Cup.

He added a second off an nearly identical play in the fifth and after setting Morris up for the hosts' third goal in the ninth, completed his hat trick in the 13th.

Cuba were on the backfoot from the outset as their winless streak extended to seven games. They came within a single strike of tying their all-time mark for most goals in a game and never gave Cuba a chance to compete, setting themselves up nicely for a more hard task on Tuesday: a match-up against continental rivals Canada.
