USA coasts in World Cup qualifier

The United States beat Barbados 8-0 on Sunday in Carson, California, to get off to a solid start in their long march to qualify for the 2010 World Cup to be held in South Africa.

“It’s good to get the whole thing underway," said US head coach Bob Bradley. "We spent a lot of time thinking about just getting off on the right foot, and a goal early like that certainly is getting off on the right foot. From there, it’s just an exercise of staying sharp, trying to play the right ball, the right timing, and finish off some of plays so we could have a margin. We were able to do that, so in those ways it was a definite success.”
