WHAT HAPPENED? In their 3-1 victory over Cagliari Wednesday, where U.S. mens national team star Christian Pulisic played a role in two goals, compatriot Musah appeared to have a blatant foul on him ignored by VAR. Cagliari midfielder Nahitan Nandez thrust his arm into the back of Musah's head, pushing him to the ground in added time, with VAR failing to take action on the incident.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: After a hot start to the campaign, followed by a slight cooldown, Pulisic seems to be back in top form for Milan while Musah came off the bench to close out the match for the Rossoneri. The USMNT duo appear to have earned the trust of boss Stefano Pioli as they both are starting to see consistent minutes with the Serie A side.

WHAT NEXT FOR MILAN? They host Lazio in Serie A action on Saturday and will hope to build on this strong result on the road.
