After the match, Pulisic was asked if he was happy to be back home and while he didn’t deny the pleasure of being in his home country, he spoke of the low match attendance.

The words of Christian Pulisic

“It was good (to be back),” Pulisic said. “But to be honest, for some reason I’m not super happy with how many Americans are hereif I’m being completely honest, thanks to those who came out and the support is always great from them, but yeah, it’s nice to be back in America and playing again.”

In the 26th minute and after a long ball, Pulisic controlled well, inside the box he got rid of two defenders and served to Brenden Aaronsonwho, alone in the box, opened the scoring.

The second goal was scored in the 32nd minute, when the ball reached the feet of Timothee Weahwho was confident and fired a powerful shot from outside the box, the ball made a strange movement and goalkeeper Bounou could do nothing to prevent the goal.

The match went to the break with a two-goal advantage for Gregg Berhalterand although Morocco came dangerously close early in the second half, the home goalkeeper again prevented their goal from being breached.

Pulisic was man of the match

The few American supporters present in the stands looked delighted, because they have a full squad and they showed it tonight. A reliable goalkeeper, a well-made back line and a solid attack that makes them dream of Qatar 2022.
