Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has reflected on the USA's 0-0 draw in their World Cup qualifier against Mexico on Thursday. The two sides started the game tied on 21 points, four points behind table-toppers Canada.

However, neither side could secure a win in what was a cagey contest. Speaking after the game, the Chelsea forward rued his missed chances but was still optimistic of USMNT's chances of qualifying for the World Cup. He said:

"We put ourselves in a position to play on Sunday and win and go to the World Cup. But of course I'm disappointed I missed a chance, and I would have loved to have won the game. I think it's a game that could've gone either way. I thought we had the better offensive chances and we had good spells, but a draw is fair."


USA coach Gregg Berhalter was asked about why he did not rotate his team for the game. He explained:

"We wanted to put a team on the field that could win the game in Azteca. That was the most important thing. There's plenty of time to recover."


USA face Panama on Sunday in what will be a crucial clash in their World Cup qualifying campaign, with Pulisic sure to feature in the game.
