    How did Pulisic play? I wasn’t able to watch

    • Started out well enough, won some free kicks and connected on some decent passes, but faded as the game went on with some turnovers and was subbed off around the 70th minute. Overall I’d say it was a 5, didn’t do anything too great or too bad.

        Thanks. Hope they give him the time to get used to the league and hopefully he continues to improve

  3. Pulisic did fine I thought. When you have a team still shakey keeping possession, losing the ball in midfield, it’s tough to get the appropriate touches and passes when they are still developing as a team.
