With an average age of 24 it showed in facing a quater final team in the 2018 World Cup for which the USMNT failed to even qualify for, very few of those players were there today.  Now ranked #5 worldwide, England brought out 68,155 fans on a mild mid week night, strong US support was evidenced by the loud USA chants that rose up. Pulisic had a great chance, shortly thereafter in 2 minutes a pair of goals were dropped on the Young Americans by the inhospitable hosts.

The US side had the  greater portion of the ball forcing Scotland to keep all 11 oft times in their own defensive half. At 39'. Mal Pugh played a great crossing  ball to Morgan in the goal box, who struck it on a full volley. For their part Scotland had no shots in the first stanza but had a flurry of offensive activity at the final whistle to finish with a paltry 2 shots overall on the defense with Long Islander Crystal Dunn.
