William Franklin scored a brace with Chandler Vincent and Kevin Roberto scoring a goal each. India played on par with USA in the first quarter of the game but the first goal opened the floodgates. As the game progress, USA changed their strategy to wing play which changed the game on its head. With Indian full-backs unable to cope up with the pacy and tricky wingers of the visitors attacks kept flooding in from wide. Andrew James was a live wire for the visitors. The attacks were so frantic that William Franklin could have had his hat-trick within the first half itself. Though Indian front-line also had their share of chances but USA's defense was a better outfit their counterparts and were equally supported by a well organized midfield.
