Christian Pulisic, known as the ‘Captain America’, led the United States to a 2-0 victory against Bolivia in the opening match of the Copa America 2024. Pulisic, a player for Milan, scored the opening goal in the third minute of the match, setting the record for the fastest goal of the tournament. He also assisted Tim Weah for the second goal in the 44th minute at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The US team dominated from the start, with Pulisic assisted by Tim Weah for the opening goal, a powerful strike that passed close to the hand of Bolivia’s goalkeeper, Roberto Fernandez. Although Bolivia briefly challenged, they struggled to maintain possession and failed to threaten the US goal significantly throughout the match.

Balogun, a forward for Monaco, had a couple of opportunities to score for the US, notably in the 36th minute and then successfully in the 44th minute thanks to a precise pass from Pulisic. Bolivia’s only notable attempt was a long-range shot by Roberto Fernandez in the 50th minute.

In the end, the United States secured a comfortable victory with Pulisic being a standout performer, creating chances for his teammates consistently. With this win, Team USA looks forward to their next match against Panamá in Atlanta, while Bolivia will face a tough challenge against New Zealand in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
