USA play 'coldest game ever' as players treated for hypothermia after World Cup qualifier

+

The USA played Honduras in a game that saw sub zero temperature in Minnesota. The World Cup qualifier was played in freezing temperatures that plummeted to -17 degrees. It was the coldest game featuring the US in more than 20 years, although they still ran out 3-0 winners at Allianz Field. Both sets of players as well as the referee were allowed to wear warm weather equipment which included snoods and face coverings. New Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Turner, who was signed in January and will arrive in the summer, kept a clean sheet but will have endured a forgettable night in the cold. Chelsea's Christian Pulisic was among the goal scorers with Weston McKennie and Walker Zimmerman also getting in on the act.
