GLENDALE, Ariz. — Ricardo Clark headed Jermaine Jones' corner kick into the net in the 7th minute of stopping time and the United States beat Venezuela 1-0 in a friendly on Saturday night.

The U.S. had dominated play with nothing to show for it before Clark beat goalkeeper Jose Morales for his third international goal and first since September 2009. Clark entered the game as a substitute in the 86th minute.

The first match between the countries in five years featured the "B'' teams of both nations because the top players are with their professional squads.

An exception was Jones, who is playing with the national team while serving an eight-game suspension by the German football federation.
