Publish date:

St. Vincent & The Grenadines took a shocking 1-0 lead over the United States in the teams' World Cup qualifying match at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Mo. on Friday night. 

Oalex Anderson, who plays for Seattle Sounders 2 in the USL, cut in from the left flank after taking the ball from Geoff Cameron, confounded U.S. defender DeAndre Yedlin, and finished past goalkeeper Brad Guzan to put the Caribbean minnows in front. 


The U.S. would respond just minutes later with a goal from Bobby Wood. 

The match is the first in the U.S.'s run of qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
