The United States continued to struggle as they began preparations for the World Cup 2022, beating Morocco 3-0 in a friendly match at home in Cincinnati.

It was a myth of two halves despite the result, where both sides separate many objects over the two halves and exclude opportunities as a result.

USMNT was just a clinic, with goals in the first half Brenden Aaronson and Timothy Weah leading 2-0.

It took a while for the class to turn to Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic, who skillfully controlled a long, high pass after defending, before finding Aaronson in the 26th minute.

The Americans won 2-0 just six minutes after Weah got the help of Reggie Cannon before Haji Wright completed the scoring in the 64th minute in the penalty area.

Despite doing a little more in the second half, Morocco failed to make things difficult for the home side, especially Selim Amallah’s penalty kick in the 75th minute.
