Well, what did you expect? An island of 50,000-ish people vs the United States men's national team? This game was always going to be a thrashing, one for the U.S. to build up its goal differential before heading into the group-deciding final match against Trinidad & Tobago.

By the time it was all over on Wednesday, the U.S. put six past St. Kitts and Nevis, running away as dominant winners. The first three of those goals came in a four-minute span between the 12th and 16th minutes, opening the floodgates that never stopped flooding.

Jesus Ferreira got three of the six as he scored his second career hat-trick. Bryan Reynolds scored his first national team goal, and on his birthday no less. Djordje Mihailovic also found the back of the net twice as the U.S. ran riot.

And, with that, it'll come down to the last game, as it always looked like it would. Both the U.S. and Jamaica have taken care of business after their tournament-opening draw. Now, it may come down to who scores most. Because of that, Wednesday night's match may just be significant, even if it didn't really teach us much about anyone involved.
