A new era of the USMNT dawned on Thursday with Giovanni Reyna and Konrad de la Fuente playing in a front three that’ll soon be able to call upon Christian Pulisic and Josh Sargent for assistance. Watching the U.S. isn’t just fun again, it’s blissful.
With 61% possession and seven shots, a goal would’ve made that sentiment a lot more believable for those just looking at the scoreline, but there’s so much joy in this squad despite the fact that they’ve hardly played together, have an average age of only 21.71 and entered the Wales match with 10 uncapped players.
One of the game’s standout performers was Weston McKennie, who’s all-action from start to finish.
