GENOA, Italy (AP) ' The United States beat Italy for the first time in 11 games over 78 years, a 1-0 victory in an exhibition Wednesday night on Clint Dempsey's goal in the 55th minute.

Dempsey took a short pass from Jozy Altidore and put a right-footed shot from just inside the penalty area past goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

The Americans had been 0-7-3 against Italy, getting outscored 32-4.



With retired baseball star Mike Piazza watching from the stands, the Americans won their fourth straight match to improve to 5-4-1 under Jurgen Klinsmann, who took over as U.S. coach from Bob Bradley last summer.
