Ricardo Pepi was handed a major assignment for his very first appearance with the U.S. men’s national team, and the FC Dallas teenager responded by helping lead a turnaround for the ages.
Pepi scored the go-ahead goal, and had a hand in three more goals in a 4-1 comeback victory over Honduras in Concacaf World Cup qualifying, a performance that helped Pepi earn SBI USMNT Man of the Match honors.
Pepi was the clear choice on a night when Sebastian Lletget and Antonee Robinson were also excellent as impact substitutions.
What did you think of Pepi’s performance? Who else do you think deserved consideration for Man of the Match?
