[GOLD CUP]
The USA cruised to a 4-0 win over Grenada in their opening game at the Gold Cup. The win in Seattle marked the 10th win in 10 Gold Cup opening games for the Americans, who are 23-0-1 in group play in the Gold Cup.

In only his second international appearance, the Columbus Crew's Robbie Rogers led the U.S. attack with a goal and assists on the first two goals by Freddy Adu and Stuart Holden.

Charlie Davies, the lone starter from the 2009 Confederations Cup runner-up team, also scored for the USA, which is seeking its third straight Gold Cup.

"It's important to start the Gold Cup the right way," said U.S. coach Bob Bradley. "There were a lot of good things - a good team effort and four different guys scoring goals. All those things are important as we start the tournament."

Steve Cherundolo, who was playing his first match since October of last year due to injury, was chosen by Bradley to wear the captain's armband for his first time ever.

Three players earned their first cap on the night, including Holden, Logan Pause and Brad Evans.

The U.S. will next play Honduras on Wednesday at Washington's RFK Stadium.

Honduras opened play with a 1-0 over Haiti. In Friday's Group A play, El Salvador beat Costa Rica, 2-1, and Canada edged Jamaica, 1-0.
