The U.S. Men’s National Team delivered a complete performance in its dominant 4-0 win over Trinidad & Tobago on Tuesday night, and it was the team’s youngest star that stole the show.
Christian Pulisic, who became the youngest-ever American starter in World Cup qualifying, assisted Jozy Altidore’s second of the night after a brilliant solo run before crossing it for Altidore’s tap-in. Pulisic’s excellent performance was enough to earn him the SBI USMNT Man of the Match honors.
Despite not scoring, Pulisic was still exceptional against the Soca Warriors. The Borussia Dortmund attacker recorded four shots, including one that bounced off both posts. Time and time again, Pulisic drove and the T&T defense, repeatedly making the opposing backline uncomfortable. While he was able to continuously create in the attacking end, Pulisic also showed a desire to track back, making several key tackles to seal what was certainly his most impressive performance in a USMNT jersey.
Pulisic’s efforts earned the 17-year-old star as SBI USMNT Man of the Match, beating out the likes of Jozy Altidore and Sacha Kljestan for Tuesday’s honors.
