Before leaving for camp in Virginia, the players for United Stations Men’s National Team were scattered around the globe competing for their club teams. We got a goal from Jann George over in Germany and a much-needed assist from Christian Pulisic in England. In other good news, Alfredo Morales returned from injury and DeAndre Yedlin put in his first 90 minute shift since back in April.

Here’s what happened over the weekend:

He hasn’t been playing as much as he - or the fans - would like, but Pulisic made the most of his quick ten minute appearance as Chelsea beat Southampton 4-1. Take another look at his classy assist below.
