US Wins 12 in a Row

Trailing 2-0 at halftime, its record winning streak in jeopardy, the U.S. men’s soccer team never panicked.

There was no need to, not with Jozy Altidore on the team.

Altidore led an impressive comeback Wednesday, scoring a hat trick and adding an assist on the other goal as the U.S. rallied to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina, 4-3, in an exhibition at Sarajevo and extend its record winning streak to 12 games. It was the first come-from-behind win on European soil for the Americans.

The 12-game winning streak is the longest in the world right now, and three shy of the record set by Spain in 2009. The win over 13th-ranked Bosnia was the second over a top-15 team during the run, following a 4-3 victory over No. 2 Germany on June 2 that started the streak.
