The U.S. national soccer team recorded a clear victory when coach Greg Berhalter returned. The Americans won 3-0 (1-0) against outsiders Uzbekistan on Saturday (local time) in St. Louis. Tim Weah took the lead in the fourth minute before Ricardo Pepi and Christian Pulisic scored further goals in stoppage time.
Berhalter’s contract expired after the World Cup in Qatar at the end of last year, and the club rehired the 50-year-old in June after controversy. “The national anthem makes you think a little bit that you’re back. “Then you go back to work, you’re on the sidelines, coaching and trying to help the team win a game,” Berhalder said after the win against outfielders Uzbekistan.
Berhalder reached the round of 16 of the World Cup in 2022. In Qatar he accused Dortmund veteran Giovanni Reina of being careless. His parents accused Berhalter of trivializing an incident in the early 1990s when he kicked his now-wife Rosalind after an argument. Berhalter acknowledged this and insisted he was sorry for the incident.
