USMNT Cruises Past Uzbekistan 3-0; Squares Off Against Oman Tuesday


The United States Men’s National Soccer Team re-kicked off the Greg Berhalter tenure with a 3-0 victory over Uzbekistan in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday afternoon.

USMNT and Juventus Forward Tim Weah netted the first goal of the match in the fourth minute, drilling the ball from just inside the eighteen-yard box across the goal into the opposite left corner to make it 1-0. The United States would threaten multiple times early in the first half, but Uzbekistan would settle into the match.

Berhalter would go to the bench and bring on forward Ricardo Pepi and Brenden Aaronson, which would give the United States a fresh look early in the second half. Defender Kristoffer Lund made his first cap for the USMNT, making this the 57th player to be called up with Berhalter at the helm.

Aaronson would assist Pepi near the top of the box and finished his first shot of the match in stoppage time to double the United States lead over Uzbekistan.

Three minutes later, USMNT midfielder Malik Tillman was taken down inside of the box and drew a penalty in the United States favor. Christian Pulisic would step up and drill the penalty kick into the left-hand side of the net to stamp a 3-0 victory over Uzbekistan.

The USMNT will travel north to St. Paul on Tuesday to face off against Oman at 8:30 PM.
