Christian Pulisic enjoys victory over Mexico
Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic was substituted in the 59th minute and immediately became a threat to Mexico. He was on the pitch for just five minutes before joining Tim Weah and finding the back of the net to score the game’s first goal. Juventus’ Weston McKennie then sealed victory in the 85th minute with a low shot, clinical finish past Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa and into the net.
“It was amazing, and the fans made it so much better,” Pulisic said after the game. “They really came out tonight. It’s really loud in there. We live in times like this. It was a crazy game, but that’s what we expected. It’s hard to destroy them. I’ll be happy to come and help us.
