Christian Pulisic

Pulisic Looked Brilliant With A Goal And His Best Performance Of The Season Vs. Lille

Christian Pulisic and Chelsea earned a 2-0 victory vs. Lille on Tuesday in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 clash. Pulisic put on a show for the London club with his best performance of the season by far.

The USMNT star was given the start in his favored left wing position and made the most of it. It could be my American bias, but I got tingles every time he was on the ball. Pulisic’s darting runs and movement on the ball continuously left Lille players on the ground in his wake.

USMNT Players’ Instagrams Tell Us How They Really Felt About That Cold Weather Game

After the USMNT beat Honduras 3-0 in frigid Minnesota, Christian Pulisic was visibly annoyed at having to answer questions from a Fox Sports reporter about scoring a brace when he only scored one goal (he had one disallowed by offside).

Watch: Denver Camel Has Better Touch On Wings Than Pulisic vs. Canada

The best American male player, Christian Pulisic, was largely ineffective during the massive showdown between the top two teams in Concacaf right now. The Chelsea winger attempted four dribbles, failing to complete a single one. 

Maybe Pulisic should’ve taken some notes from Sprout the camel.
