Pulisic plays 2nd US match in 13 months, starts vs England

LONDON (AP) Christian Pulisic played his second game with the U.S. national team in 13 months, returning to the lineup for Thursday night's exhibition against England.

The 20-year-old midfielder was part of a five-man midfield in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Weston McKennie and Wil Trapp in deep positions and Julian Green flanked by Pulisic and Tim Weah - a son of former FIFA Player of the Year and current Liberia President George Weah.

Pulisic had played just once for the U.S. since the Americans' loss at Trinidad and Tobago in October 2017 that ended a streak of seven straight World Cup appearances, a May exhibition against Bolivia at Chester, Pennsylvania, near his hometown of Hershey.
