U.S. men’s national team head coach Gregg Berhalter praised his side after beating Costa Rica 2-1 in Wednesday’s World Cup qualifier, adding that his side are ‘growing as a team’.

The USMNT let their inexperience show in the beginning after Costa Rica scored a goal within the first minute of the game, but the American side quickly got back on track with help of FC Barcelona’s Sergino Dest and Lille forward Timothy Weah. 

“For us to be navigating through this CONCACAF qualifying – which is a bear, a monster – with this group, and the amount of poise they showed on the field today, particularly going down a goal, and then the second half being up a goal and managing the game really well,” said Berhalter after the match.

“I mean, Gianluca Busio comes on, and he looks like he’s 30 years old. So I’m proud of the effort. The guys showed a lot of poise and they’re growing. They’re growing as a team.”

Weah echoed the coach’s thoughts, admitting the team didn’t crumble after the first goal, sticking to the game plan in order to maintain momentum.
