USA moved to first place ahead of Mexico in the North America World Cup qualifiers after beating Mexico 2-0 on Friday night.

With the game goalless, Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic came off the bench in the 69th minute and scored 5 minutes later to make it 1-0 for the USA which would prove to be the winner. (Weston McKennie made it 2-0 in the 85th minute)

The goal was set up by Timmy Weah (son of former Chelsea striker and current President of Liberia, George Weah) with a nice ball in from the right, but full credit also to Pulisic for cutting across his defender to get his head to the ball and direct it into the back of the net.

Pulisic then survived a horror challenge from Mexico’s Héctor Herrera in the 88th minute as the game became increasingly tensed.

USA then had a man sent off in the 89th minute but would on to the massive 2-0 win.
