Jozy Altidore's hat-trick inspired a second-half comeback for the USA as they beat Bosnia 4-3 on Wednesday to extend their unbeaten run.
The Sunderland striker's treble saw the CONCACAF Gold Cup winners make it 13 games without a loss, while Bosnia suffered defeat for the first time in 10 matches.
Bosnia dominated the first half in Sarajevo and led at the break through strikes from Edin Dzeko and Vedad Ibisevic.
But the USA hit back with four second-half goals to ensure that Dzeko's second was merely a consolation.
Eddie Johnson sparked the revival early in the second half to stun the hosts, who last lost on June 6, 2012, against Mexico.
Dzeko broke the deadlock with just seven minutes on the clock, the Manchester City striker springing the offside trap to slot past Tim Howard.
The USA tried to muster a prompt response and saw appeals for a penalty waved away when Mikkel Diskerud took a tumble inside the box.
But it was the European side who carried the greater threat and after Ibisevic missed a fairly straightforward opportunity from Dzeko's cutback, he found his range.
Rising to meet a 30th-minute corner, the 29-year-old outmuscled two defenders to direct his header past the helpless Howard.
Juergen Klinsmann's charges were a different proposition after the interval and Eddie Johnson halved the deficit with 55 minutes gone, crafting a simple finish after Altidore took the goalkeeper out of the equation.
Provider then turned goalscorer four minutes later as Altidore latched onto Fabian Johnson's pass before stroking home with his left foot.
The turnaround was complete with six minutes to play, Altidore steering a superb free-kick into the top corner.
He rounded off his hat-trick just two minutes later, receiving a pass from Michael Bradley before coolly finishing past Asmir Begovic.
There was still time for Manchester City striker Dzeko to flick a header into the net with his back to goal, doubling his tally in the process, but it was all too late for Bosnia, who could not stage a comeback of their own.
