Just minutes after coming on as a second half substitute, Christian Pulisic scored his second career international goal is spectacular fashion. The returning Sacha Kljestan set him up with a brilliant pass into the box. The Borussia Dortmund youngster took the pass in stride with a delicate first touch and did this:
GOOOOOAAAAL!@cpulisic_10 nets a fourth for @ussoccer. 0-4. #Russia2018 https://t.co/ZciAVHb7o0— beIN SPORTS USA (@beINSPORTSUSA) September 2, 2016
Obviously, we have to preface every Pulisic highlight with the “don’t hype him up” tag, but that goal is pure class again. You can’t teach a first touch like that. And his composure in front of goal is something you rarely see in an American player of his age.
Yes, the hype train is continuing full steam ahead, like it or not.
