Three goals were scored by American-born players during the USA-Italy 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup match yesterday.
New Jersey-born Giuseppe Rossi scored twice in the second half and Daniele De Rossi had a goal as Italy rallied to overcome a Landon Donovan penalty kick and beat the United States 3-1.
