‘Pulisic 1 goal, 1 assist’ leads U.S. to 2-0 win over Bolivia in Copa first leg

The U.S. Men’s National Team defeated Bolivia in its first group game of the 2024 South American Soccer Championship (Copa America), led by a multi-point performance from “Captain” Christian Pulisic (AC Milan).

The U.S. won 2-0 in the first leg of their Group C match against Bolivia at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Thursday (Sept. 24).

With the win, the U.S. (3 points, Goals +2) is tied for second place in Group C with Uruguay (3 points, Goals +2), which defeated Panama 3-1, but trails on goal difference.

Wearing the captain’s armband, “Captain America” Pulisic put on a one-man show, scoring the game-winning goal and assisting on another to lead the U.S. to its first win.

The U.S. played a one-sided game against Bolivia, firing off a whopping 20 shots, including eight on goal.

The US opened the scoring in the third minute of the first half, and it was Pulisic who was the hero.

Following a short pass from Timothy Weah (Juventus) on a left corner kick, Pulisic moved to the left side of the penalty area and curled a right-footed shot into the top right corner of the Bolivian goal.

The U.S. added an insurance goal in the 44th minute of the first half.

Pulisic won the ball in the middle of the field and advanced before crossing the ball to Pauline Balogun (AS Monaco) near the penalty spot, who finished with a left-footed shot.

Pulisic, who assisted on Balogun’s goal, finished with a goal and an assist in the first half.

The U.S. kept up the offense in the second half, but were unable to add to their two-goal lead.

In the first Group C matchup between Uruguay and Panama at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, Uruguay won 3-1.

Uruguay, who are tied with Argentina (15) for the most Copa America titles in history, jumped out to an early lead when Maximiliano Araujo (Toluca) scored in the 16th minute.

Leading 1-0 at halftime, Uruguay added a second goal from Darwin Núñez (Liverpool) in the 40th minute before Matias Viña (Flamengo) struck in second-half stoppage time to seal the victory.

Panama avoided defeat thanks to Amir Murillo’s (Marseille) goal just before the end of second-half stoppage time. 파워볼사이트 추천
