Christian Pulisic has been on fire since the restart, and has been one of the best players in the world in the past 7 weeks. As the calendar turns to August, he’s keeping his summer fire hot with yet another goal. He is the first American man to score in a FA Cup Final.
His hot streak is coming at the perfect time, as he has a chance to lift another domestic cup trophy. He previously won the dfb Pokal with Borussia Dortmund in 2017. Chelsea also has their 2nd leg in the Champions League Round of 16 against Bayern Munich next Saturday, where they will need to make up a 3-goal aggregate deficit.
The FA Cup is currently on ESPN+ (sign up here if you need) and is still early, so there’s plenty of time for more fireworks from America’s brightest star. Chelsea is trying to win its 9th FA Cup trophy.
