USMNT loses to Germany despite Pulisic's superb strike in friendly

Julian Nagelsmann got off to a winning start as Germany’s coach on Saturday with his team taking a comfortable 3-1 win over the United States in a friendly.

Christian Pulisic had put the USA ahead in the 27th minute in the matchup at East Hartford, Connecticut, with a superb solo goal, cutting in from the left flank and then firing into the far corner.

But that appeared to serve merely as a wake-up call for Germany with Ilkay Gundogan levelling in the 39th minute after good work from Leroy Sane.

Germany went ahead in the 58th with Niclas Fullkrug slotting home after a perfectly weighted pass from Robin Gosens.

Fullkrug then set up the lively Jamal Musiala for a simple tap-in to make it 3-1 for the Euro 2024 hosts.
