If you couldn’t spot Pulisic, here’s a little helping guide as to where our American hero is.
It’s worth noting that Pulisic is wearing the gray USMNT hoodie around his neck in the video.
No other Americans made the cut for the Champions League intro video. It’s a shame Weston McKennie’s superb scissor-kick at Camp Nou wasn’t featured in the video. UEFA had a clear agenda to try to avoid having any of the Super League teams on screen.
The three teams that haven’t pulled out of the Super League — Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus — were all shunned from the intro. Here’s the list of the Super League teams and if they made the cut or not.
- Barcelona: No
- Real Madrid: No
- Atlético Madrid: Yes
- Juventus: No
- Inter Milan: No
- AC Milan: No
- Chelsea: Yes (Defending champions, kind of had to include Chelsea.)
- Manchester City: Yes
- Manchester United: No
- Liverpool: No
- Tottenham: Too busy competing in the Europa Conference League
- Arsenal: LOL
Tough break for the Super League teams.
The UEFA Champions League group stage draw will be held on Aug. 26. The group stage will begin on Sept. 14.
