    I just feel like that sums up Pulisic's year: on his last touch, he gets smashed in the face with a ball from three feet away.

    Im not sure I see him as a cm but his versatility is encouraging. He really could have helped during qualifying

    Pulisic has had ups and downs. This was his very first down.

    Fair enough. I’m sure a lot of folks like Stu the commentator in part because they liked Stu the player (and by all accounts Stu the person is a good guy). I agree with you on guys like Ray Hudson, who I find absolutely intolerable.

    If I were a FS1 producer, I’d tell him to stop using Anglophile turns of phrase because when he does, it doesn’t sound natural (which shouldn’t be the case given his background), and work on being less focused on the obvious during his commentary. I don’t often find him pointing out something that wasn’t readily apparent.

    I also feel like sometimes he’s hesitant to state his opinion on a play (the Ramos judo-toss on Salah on Saturday being fresh in my mind). There’s a way to be opinionated without sounding like a blowhard like Lalas.

    He’s better than Twellman, though, because I don’t feel like I got yelled at for 90 minutes. So he’s got hat going for him.

    84' 3-0 Parks receives facing away at 24m center, turns and shoots right foot high wide right.

    85' 3-0 Bolivia pass around 25m vs. our slow-jogging shell. Alí shoots from 25m center, deflected wide left.

    85' 3-0 Off the restart, Green(?) counters across circle right, chips a switch for Novakovich sprinting past the line through circle left -- held onside by the LB across the field, but AR misses it, flags it offside.

    86' 3-0 Bolivia left throw-in. Simple switch-right try, Pulisic jumps the route -- and takes the ball right in the nose. That spins him around and down. Stoppage, trainer, Villafaña is already up at 4R.

    87' 3-0 Pulisic pops up, waves off the sub :D Pulisic dribbles up wide left -- offside?

    89' 3-0 USA subs in (6 of 6) #19 Jorge Villafaña for #10 Christian Pulisic. All these subs :p

    90' 3-0 Gooch dribbles to 10m mid-right, shoots way high. +5' :alien:

    90+1' (of +5') 3-0 Green left ck, to spot. Novakovich out-heights the scrum, but jumps leaning slightly away, heads way over.
