Matthew Hoppe makes international debut for USA
S04 attacker Matthew Hoppe made his debut in the early hours of Friday (16/07, Middle European time zone) for the US Men’s National Team. The 20-year-old played 58 minutes in his side’s 6-1 win over Martinique and provided the assist Daryl Dike’s goal in the 14th minute.
Dike scored his second of the game in the 59th minute, with other goals coming through a Samuel Camille own goal (23’), Miles Robinson (50’), Gyasi Zardes (70’) and Nicholas Gioacchini (90’). Martinique’s goal came from the penalty spot through Emamanuel Riviere (64’).
