Pulisic, Weah turn on class as USMNT takes 2-0 lead vs Morocco (video)

The United States men’s national team opened up a 2-0 lead on Morocco after both nation’s keepers made terrific early saves, and that’s where the scoreline stands at halftime on Wednesday in Cincinnati.

The Yanks have just a half-dozen games to get ready for the winter World Cup in Qatar but won’t need as much as that in terms of attack if Pulisic’s class on the opening goal in Ohio is any clue.

Pulisic got behind the Morocco defense and took Walker Zimmerman’s terrific long ball down with a world-class first touch, wiggling through the box before laying a square ball into space that two USMNT players could’ve hit home.

It was Pulisic’s fellow Champions League player in Weah who upped the ante in technique when he latched onto a Reggie Cannon pass a drove a devastating shot past Bounou.
