Getting a win at the Estadio Azteca was tough enough against Mexico. Doing so when USMNT star Christian Pulisic misses an easy opportunity? Good luck.
Pulisic is Captain AmericaOr at least that’s how the story is supposed to go.
However, the USMNT star missed an easy opportunity in the first half against Mexico, when the Americans should have scored a crucial goal in their quest to qualify for the World Cup.
Qualifying at CONCACAF isn’t a big deal, but with the likes of Canada and Panama suddenly on the rise, and Mexico and Costa Rica remaining consistent, USMNT is by no means a guarantee of a spot.
Missing the World Cup for the second consecutive cycle would be a disaster. It’s unpredictable until it happens, and must generate more responses than Taylor Twellman’s words.
How tall is Christian Pulisic?
Pulisic is listed as 5 foot-10, although reports suggest he is closer to 5-9.
USMNT fans react to Christian Pulisic’s close goal
Pulisic had a chance on Mexico’s doorstep in the first half, only to have the ball hit Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
The reaction from USMNT fans has been unkind, as that is the chance Pulisic is expected to bury. He got two goals in his last game four appearances for Chelsea. So why fight at the international level?
There’s more to it than that, as Pulisic took every opportunity to bury his own.
Here’s hoping he gets another one.
