Jozy Altidore was again the hero for the USA as they came from behind to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 4-3 in an international friendly with Sarajevo on Wednesday.
Altidore has now scored seven goals in his past five internationals and was thrilled to see his teammates start playing with confidence despite trailing 2-0.
"The key moment was obviously the first goal for us (scored by Eddie Johnson)," Altidore said after the match.
"This was a key. Because it turned the game around and everybody started to believe a little bit more that we could get a result sand I think the response from the guys was fantastic."
He added: "I don't think we were as comfortable as a whole, as a team (in the first half).
"We didn't create so much. And I think the two errors [on the Bosnia goals] made us lose confidence but I think in the second half we knew that we could play against Bosnia.
"We stepped up the tempo a little and I think we created enough chances."
