Christian Pulisic will be the best USMNT soccer player ever. That’s my prediction.
At 18 years old, he is already regularly starting and scoring for top flight German club Borussia Dortmund. Recently, he drew attention from world famous club FC Barcelona, who scouted him at his recent games.
He has already made appearances for the US national team and is earning high praise. I’ve personally watched him play in many games for club and country. He is excellent on the ball and very quick. I would rate him as the second best winger in the US pool at this moment. He projects, if he continues growing, to be better than Landon Donovan ever was. You don’t have to take my word for it though.
Landon Donovan said it himself. He was quoted as saying that Pulisic is far ahead of where Donovan was at his age. Tall praise from the man who was the face of US soccer for over a decade.
At 5’8’’ Christian Pulisic is a speedy, lethal winger who can play both sides and use both feet, though he is right footed. Starting at Dortmund at 17 is no small feat. He’s also gaining from training and playing against the world’s best in the German Bundesliga (german league).
The sky is the limit for this guy. Athletically, he has the ability to compete with anyone. In terms of technical ability, he is already ahead of Landon Donovan at the same age and is probably better than most of the USMNT pool of players right now.
Pulisic jerseys will flying off the shelfs for the world cup in 2022.
