United States' Gregg Berhalter explains Christian Pulisic sub vs. Canada

United States star Christian Pulisic was subbed off in Tuesday's disappointing 2-0 loss to Canada due to flu-like symptoms he'd experienced the previous two days, said manager Gregg Berhalter.

"He wanted to continue," said Berhalter about Pulisic after the match. "You could see the disappointment in his face, and we had to make that decision. We made the decision based on being not sure how much he had left. We wanted to inject some energy into the team."

Berhalter's U.S. in crisis following Trinidad-esque defeat to Canada

TORONTO -- Just over two years since the United States men's national team failed to qualify for the World Cup, U.S. manager Gregg Berhalter had his own Couva-lite moment.

Sure, the stakes in Tuesday's 2-0 CONCACAF Nations League defeat against Canada weren't nearly as high as that night in Trinidad. We're talking about a spot in the World Cup compared to a nascent regional competition. The disaster against Trinidad and Tobago was also the final chapter in that qualifying run.

Gregg Berhalter: Lack of 'desire' hurt U.S. in lackluster loss to Canada

TORONTO -- U.S. men's national team manager Gregg Berhalter bemoaned his team's lack of desire in its 2-0 loss to Canada in the CONCACAF Nations League.

The triumph for the Reds was their first over the U.S. in 34 years, snapping a winless streak of 17 games. Alphonso Davies broke the deadlock in the 63rd minute, bundling home Scott Arfield's low, driven pass to the far post. Lucas Cavallini added Canada's second in the second minute of stoppage time to make the game safe.
