Christian Pulisic’s brace helps send the USMNT to the CONCACAF Nations League finals

Christian Pulisic scored two goals to lead the United States to a 3-0 victory over Mexico in the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Nations League. 

Pulisic took advantage of poor Mexican defending to score the first goal in the 37th minute, finding an opening to shoot a low shot past goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. This win secures the defending champions a spot in the final against Canada.

The winger from Chelsea scored again right at the beginning of the second half, thanks to an assist from Timothy Weah, making it 2-0 with an effortless finish.

Frustration got the best of Diego Cocca’s team as defender Cesar Montes was shown a red card, and then the US team also had a player sent off when Weston McKennie was red carded after a brawl. 

Ricardo Pepi scored again in the 78th minute, but then the game spiraled out of control with Sergino Dest and Gerardo Arteaga being sent off, and the match had to be paused due to homophobic chanting from the crowd. 

The US team will face Canada in the final on Sunday, while Mexico will play against Panama for the bronze medal.
