Final: 6-1 United States

The United States men's national soccer team dismantled Belize in the first round of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Chris Wondolowski had a hat trick in the first half, with two diving headers and one tally off a rebound. Halftime substitution Stuart Holden scored after just 11 minutes on the pitch, Orozco added a header goal and Landon Donovan made good on a penalty kick.

The Americans are trotting out many players trying to prove their worth in time for the World Cup such as Donovan, Holden, Wondolowski and Mix Diskerud.

The U.S. now has a six-game win streak, including an easy 6-0 win over Guatemala in the game before Belize.

Belize has never qualified for the World Cup and is playing in their first Gold Cup, but the US couldn't sleep on the tiny Central American nation. Canada and Mexico, the other tournament favorites, were upset by Martinique and Panama.
