Christian Pulisic criticized the mentality of the USMNT following their 3-0 loss to Mexico, saying that his side need to stop being afraid of their rivals.
"We still play with fear against them, and that is what I can't really live with. That needs to change. We have to go and play like we're good enough to be out there, be confident and play without thinking twice about it. That's how it needs to be, and that's just not where we're at right now, said Pulisic.
Gregg Berhalter added that he was happy with how the team played despite the result.
"You guys are going to think I'm crazy, I'm happier about this game than I am about the Gold Cup final. In the Gold Cup final, I felt like all we did was play the ball long and that was our only solution. And now at least we tried to play in the way that we're envisioning," said Berhalter.
