Last night, The United States faced Morocco in a friendly at TQL Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio. The 3-0 win was kicked off with a goal in the 26th minute by former Union player, Brenden Aaronson.
After a long ball over the top of Morocco's defense, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer alum, Christian Pulisic, perfectly settles the ball with the side of his foot and laid it off to Aaronson for a one-touch goal. This opening goal from New Jersey native, Aaronson, marks his sixth career international goal. Aaronson recently signed with Leeds United.
The midfielder's addition to the Premier League is reported to be for a fee of $29.5 million. SI Soccer on Twitter: "Never a doubt tonight.
