The Gregg Berhalter era for the men's national team began Sunday night at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, defeating Panama 3-0.

Berhalter, former coach of the Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer, was appointed to the US position on 4 December. He replaced interim coach Dave Sarachan, who took over in November 2017, after Jürgen Klinsmann and Bruce Arena had not qualified the US for the 2018 World Cup.

Midfielder Djordje Mihailovic (40th place) minute) and striker Christian Ramirez (89th) was the 52nd and 53rd US player who scored on his debut.

Even defender Walker Zimmerman scored his second goal in five games in the 80th minute with a header from 8 yards distance defender Nick Lima, also a debutant, crossed.

Berhalter, a former US defense lawyer, is tasked with reviving the program. Defender Daniel Lovitz and midfielders Corey Baird and Jeremy Ebobisse played in the first US games.

Before Mihailovic's breakthrough goal, the Americans had almost all the gates nearby.

in Columbus last season Berhalter had layoffs that Corey Baird sent in the 25th minute and Lima in the 27th position sent the right post to the right. A minute later, Baird had a blow from Aaron Long in his first game as captain, going over the goal.

Zardes was involved in the first goal and had a pass for Baird on the right. Baird's service to Mihailovic was 1

5 yards away.

Zack Steffen, the 2018 MLS Goalkeeper for the crew, made a left-back from Edson Samms in the 56th minute.

Relieved in the 74th minute by Sean Johnson (a single save).
