ST. LOUIS (AP) — The United States won its first match in Gregg Berhalter’s second term as coach, beating Uzbekistan 3-0 in an exhibition behind goals by Tim Weah, Ricardo Pepi and Christian Pulisic. Weah put the U.S. ahead in the fourth minute, Pepi doubled the lead in second-half stoppage time and Pulisic converted a penalty kick in the fifth minute of stoppage time. Berhalter first was hired after the failure to reach the 2018 World Cup. He was replaced by interim coaches while the U.S. Soccer Federation investigated a domestic violence accusation brought to its attention by the Reyna family, then was rehired.
