The United States Men’s National Team closed out the September international window with a 4-0 victory over Oman on Tuesday night. Goals from Folarin Balogun, Brenden Aaronson, and Ricardo Pepi all hit the back of the net, along with an own goal that Pepi was also involved in creating.

It completed a September window for the USMNT that saw them beat Oman and Uzbekistan by a combined 7-0 score. The match against Oman was one where production was on a higher level for the squad, with the defense only allowing Oman 1 shot on goal and creating 19 shots on the other end, 7 on frame.
