CINCINNATI — Even the most glaring blight on the U.S. men’s national team’s performance against Morocco was a forgivable one.

After Morocco was awarded a penalty kick on a questionable call by center official Ismael Cornejo, Moroccan Selim Amallah pounded his shot into the crossbar. The ball caromed back into play but the Americans were eventually able to steer the ball out of harm’s way. 

Defensively, that’s as shaky as it got for the USMNT, even as New England Revolution and Arsenal FC-bound goalkeeper Matt Turner was forced into eight saves in the match. 

Offensively, U.S. manager Gregg Berhalter’s team had plenty of ideas, chances and converted opportunities. Taken together, the USMNT impressed in many facets in a 3-0 victory against Morocco on Wednesday night at TQL Stadium.
