Donovan hat trick leads US past Scotland 5-1
Landon Donovan scored first international hat trick in five years to lead the United States to an easy 5-1 victory over Scotland in a friendly on Saturday.
Donovan scored in the third minute, then added a pair of second-half goals in his first game with the national squad following an eight-month absence due to injuries and commitments to his Major League Soccer team, the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Donovan also set an American mark with his 125th international cap — one more than defender Jeff Agoos.
Michael Bradley scored on a 30-yard (meter) shot in the 10th minute and Jermaine Jones got his second international goal in the second half.
