He is America’s best soccer player, and he’s just 19. Hershey’s Christian Pulisic appears on today’s show at 3:15 p.m., then plays for Germany’s Borussia Dortmund against Portugal’s S.L. Benfica tomorrow night at Heinz Field. Kickoff is 8 p.m.
Dortmund are 2-0 in the International Champions Cup quasi-tournament. Pulisic has sparkled in victories over Manchester City and Liverpool FC. (Highlights below.)
Pulisic is electric, extremely aggressive on the ball, very entertaining and in demand.
He’s likely to play this season with Dortmund, a perennial challenger in the Bundesliga, but will eventually move to a bigger club for a transfer fee that could top $100 million. (Let’s hope it's Liverpool FC.)
The United States didn’t qualify for this year’s World Cup. But here’s betting Pulisic gets the U.S. to Qatar in 2022. He’s that good.
