Christian Pulisic replaces Chris Wondolowski to start second half

With the United States already trailing 2-0 and looking completely ineffective on the offensive end, manager Jurgen Klinsmann has made his first bold decision: Inserting 17-year-old Christian Pulisic to start the second half against Argentina.

Pulisic replaces Chris Wondolowski, who committed more fouls (three) than he had completed passes (two) in the first half. Wondolowski also had the giveaway and then the foul that led to Leo Messi's free-kick goal that gave Argentina their second goal.

Pulisic appears to have been deployed on the left wing, with Gyasi Zardes replacing Wondolowski as a forward in the 4-4-2.
