Christian Pulisic reacts to USA’s goalless draw against England

Chelsea star and USA international Christian Pulisic believed USA did enough to beat England in their World Cup clash on Friday.

Pulisic told Fox Sports: “I think there was a lot of positives.

“We had stretches even in the first half where we looked dominant and created some chances and unfortunately couldn’t finish some of them off.

“We managed the game quite well and, you know, to come away with a draw against them is obviously, a pretty good result, but we felt that we could have even won the game.”

Reflecting on hitting England’s crossbar in the first half, the 24-year-old said that he and his teammates “just have to be slightly more clinical and  just continue to be aggressive and creating more and more chances.”

USA play Iran in their final group game knowing they control their own destiny.

Pulisic added: “It’s all about winning the game so we got to come out very aggressive and win the game and move on to the next round. I’m very confident that we can do it.”

Pulisic also thanked the American fans for their support in the goalless draw against England.

He said: “Today was great. Just seeing all the American fans and the way that they were cheering, it just pushes us along so much.

“We’re so grateful and we’re thankful for everyone back home when watching and just all the support.”
