It was a day to remember for the Chelsea youngster, and USMNT historians, but Christian Pulisic’s performance is just one of many positives our Yanks Abroad brought us over the weekend. There were goals from Terrence Boyd & Emmanuel Sabbi, assists from Sergiño Dest & Josh Sargent, plus we’ve got players returning from injury and defenders throwing down shutouts!

Are you not entertained?!

Christian Pulisic

After two fantastic performances coming off the bench, Frank Lampard gave Pulisic the nod for the starting lineup at Turf Moor on Saturday. The 21-year-old led the way for the Blues with his first professional hat trick and it was just ‘perfect’. The match ended 4-2 as Burnley were able to pull back two goals in the closing minutes.
