Pulisic and USA into Nations League final, Jorginho assist in big Italy win

That was probably the Americans’ best chance of the game until the 89th minute, when Jordan Siebatcheu, who had come off the bench for his competitive debut, scored a dramatic late winner with a close-range diving header.

Pulisic was then replaced by fellow Chelsea man Matt Miazga, who spent the past season on loan at Anderlecht, in the last minute of added time.

The USA will now face Mexico, who beat Costa Rica on penalties in the other semi, in the first-ever CONCACAF Nations League final in Denver late on Sunday evening, UK time.

Jorginho was named in the Italy starting line-up for their friendly with the Czech Republic in Bologna as they continue preparations for Euro 2020, despite only meeting up with the squad on Wednesday.
