Guadalajara (Mexico), March 21st (EFE). The United States defeated the Dominican Republic 4-0 on Sunday and reached the semi-finals of the CONCACAF pre-Olympic tournament by adding its second win in two games.
For the United States, they switched Jackson Yewell, Hassani Dotson twice, and Djorje Mihajlovic.
The United States dominated the first half, but the Dominican Republic stood up well in defense and held their opponent’s match.

In the 60th minute, Sebastian Saucedo received a pass in the area and kicked Yuel in the face in the first goal.
Mihajlovic entered the area from the left flank after 13 minutes and helped newcomer Dotson, who scored the second goal with a low shot on the right post from goalkeeper Johan Guzman.
The score came 3-0 at 78, and Mihajlovic reconnected with Dotson, who switched him over with a shot to Guzmán’s right-hand post.
In the 90th minute, Benjamin Michel entered the baseline from the right and passed the ball that crossed the area, sending Mihajlovic the last fourth goal into the net.
