Sascha Kljestan became the first American to score his first three international goals in the same game since Donelli 75 years ago, leading the United States over Sweden 3-2 in an exhibition Saturday night.

Making his 12th international appearance, Kljestan beat goalkeeper Johan Dahlin with a 34-yard free kick in the 17th minute, then converted a penalty kick in the 40th following a foul on Marvell Wynne by Adam Johansson.

After Daniel Nannskog scored for Sweden on a diving 14-yard header in the 73rd, Kljestan made it 3-1 on a 12-yard shot a minute later off a pass from Brian Ching. Mikael Dahlberg put an 8-yard header past U.S. goalkeeper Troy Perkins in the 89th off Alexander Farnerud’s second assist.
