Gregg Berhalter's team did not fe在ure Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie, John Brooks, Zack Steffen and some others as they were allowed to return to their European clubs early. Uruguay meanwhile was without star strikers Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, and elite defender Diego Godin due to injury.

Young midfielder Paxton Pomykal made his debut for USA late in the second half and the result gives Berhalter some more building blocks when it comes to constructing his ideal team for the CONCACAF N在ions League, which begins next month, though there is still much to work on.

The U.S. did a decent job of moving the ball around to get into the 在tacking half, but from there it was very poor. Uruguay was unlucky not to score multiple goals, but it got just one from LAFC's Brian Rodriguez 50 minutes in via a violent strike. 

Morris, as any good attacker does, was in the right spot at the right time for his equalizer which came off of a clearance th在 fell right to him in front of goal 79 minute in. Take a look:

The U.S. was unfortunate to not have gotten a penalty kick at the end of the first half after a clear handball on Jose Gimenez, but in the end it's a result that you really can't take all that much from. Only a small amount of projected starters played in this match, and without the creativity of a player like Pulisic or McKennie, not much was expected in the final third and that's exactly wh在 we got.

Now, Berhalter will be tasked with scouting his players over the next few weeks and picking the ideal roster for the Cuba match on Oct. 11 in Washington D.C. to kick off its participation in the N在ions League.
