Salomon Rondon fired a first-half brace to propel Venezuela to a 3-0 victory against USA, becoming his country’s all-time leading goalscorer in the process.
The striker opened the scoring, in turn levelling Juan Arango’s record, before hitting his second and his team's third after 36 minutes to become the highest-scoring Venezuelan on the international stage.
As a kid, I had many dreams...— Salomón Rondón (@salorondon23) June 9, 2019
I dreamed of playing for@SeleVinotinto and, once I achieved that, my goal was to beat Juan Arango's record.
After doing so today, I feel really happy and am so proud to be Venezuelan and continue to make history for my country. pic.twitter.com/gLPngBJUIQ
The friendly was as part of the build-up to Venezuela’s Copa America campaign. They will be in Group A and take on Peru, Brazil and Bolivia, starting this Saturday.
