FOOTBALL: U.S. men shut out by England, 3-0

The English national team scored a 3-0 win over the U.S. men’s National Team before 68,155 at Wembley Stadium, scoring twice in the first half.

After English keeper Jordan Pickford made a tough save on a Christian Pulisic shot in the 24th minute, the English took the lead on a laser from the top of the box by Jesse Lingard for a 1-0 lead. Three minutes later, Trent Alexander-Arnold blasted a shot from the right side across to the left post and past U.S. keeper Brad Guzan for a 2-0 advantage.

The U.S. had another chance on a Pulisic shot in the 62nd minute, but it was blocked out of bounds. In the 77th minute, England scored the final goal of the match on a Callum Wilson touch from the six-year box off a Fabian Delph cross from the left side.

The English outshot the U.S., 15-10 and improved to 8-2-1 against the U.S. all-time, and 3-0-0 against the U.S. on English soil.

The U.S., fielding its young team that averages 24 years old, has one more game scheduled in 2018, vs. Italy on 20 November at Genk (BEL), kicking off at 2:45 p.m. Eastern time.
