Christian Pulisic is set to join up with his US Men’s National Team teammates over the international break as they prepare to face off against CONCACAF nations Cuba and Canada.
Our young American recently spoke with NBC Sports about the upcoming fixtures and the current look of Gregg Berhalter’s young side.
Pulisic added another notch in his assist tally against Southampton at the weekend, making him the team’s assist leader with four in all competitions, and he’ll be looking to carry some momentum with him into the matches with his national teammates. ‘We expect tough games,’ he told NBC’s Pro Soccer Talk.
‘Against Cuba it is a nice home game in DC, we want to show everyone what this young group is about and what we can do and what we are looking like going forward. It’s a really big time for us. I think Canada should be really exciting as well because they have a good young team too. I’m really excited,’ he beamed.
Asked whether he feels the international break has come at the right time, Christian offered, ‘When I go there [the USMNT], I want to get minutes and gain more international experience. It can only help me here at Chelsea.’
Pulisic and the USMNT face Cuba on Friday 11 October and then travel to Toronto to play Canada on 15 October.
