Gregg Berhalter admits ‘we’re all excited’

    U.S. men’s national team head coach Gregg Berhalter praised newcomer Ricardo Pepi after he scored twice against Jamaica to earn the American side the victory, adding “we’re all excited.”

    The FC Dallas star recently declared his loyalty to the United States after being called up by both the American side and the Mexican team due to his dual-nationality. He finally made his debut on 8 September during the 4-1 victory against Honduras, where he scored the second goal of the match. 

    “We’re all excited,” Berhalter told the media. “For us, we’re just sitting there and we’re on the train. He’s an 18-year-old who gets an opportunity, takes advantage.

    “What you see and I think what I really like is that he has this instinct, and it’s really hard to teach that to players. It’s not easy to come back and he knew eyes were on him and the word I’d use is professional. I thought he had an excellent performance.”

    Pepi now has three goals in two appearances for the national team, propelling his way to becoming a starter and key figure for Berhalter. Despite the hype train surrounding him, the striker admitted now is not the time to be overwhelmed with the situation.
