MNT Rewind: Pulisic Comes Close to First Champions League Goal

The U.S. Men’s National Team coaching staff was out in Europe this week, taking in matches as Bruce Arena works towards filling out his roster for the MNT’s crucial World Cup Qualifying matches at the end of March.

At midweek, Danny Williams’ 77th minute equalizer helped spur Reading’s 3-2 comeback win vs. Brentford. Trailing 2-1, a combination up the right unleashed Jamaica international Garath McCleary, who drove to the end line before turning in a cross for Williams, who slid through to poke past Brentford goalkeeper Daniel Bentley. The goal was Williams’ fourth of the season and helped fourth-place Reading stay in the race for the English Championship’s automatic promotion places. 

In UEFA Champions League play, Christian Pulisic played the final eight minutes for a Borussia Dortmund side that had plenty of chances, but couldn’t convert in a 1-0 defeat at Benfica. Moments after entering the match, Pulisic’s volley from the top of the area deflected through traffic before forcing an impressive reaction stop out of Benfica goalkeeper Ederson Moraes. Dortmund will look to overturn to the 1-0 deficit when they return to Signal Iduna Park for the second leg on March 8. 

Fabian Johnson and Borussia Mönchengladbach will also have to turn around a 1-0 defeat they suffered in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League tie with Fiorentina. Johnson played 77 minutes on the left wing for ‘Gladbach, and will travel to Stadio Artemio Franchi for leg two this Thursday.

In Scotland, Perry Kitchen’s cross from the left picked out Arnaud Sutchuin Djoum for the 64th minute equalizer in Heart’s 1-1 draw with Inverness. The result keeps the Jam Tarts firmly in fourth place in the Scottish Premier League table. 

WATCH: Perry Kitchen Dishes Second Assist of the Season

Back in Germany, John Brooks put in one of his best performances of the season, nearly leading Hertha Berlin to 1-0 victory against league leaders Bayern Munich only to have the German giants equalize through Robert Lewandowski on the last play of the game.

In Holland, Matt Miazga got the start for Vitesse and was active on two different set pieces as the club fell 1-0 to second-place Ajax. Eighth place Vitesse sits one place out of the Eredivisie’s final Europa League qualifying spot with 11 matches to play.

In Mexico, Edgar Castillo returned to the Monterrey starting XI, helping Los Rayados keep a clean sheet in a 1-0 win vs. Pachuca. On Sunday, Paul Arriola went the distance for Club Tijuana, while Joe Corona played 73 minutes in a wild 3-3 draw away to Pumas UNAM.
