Pulisic, the “Captain America” of the golden generation of the United States

This Monday Christian Pulisic celebrates his 25th birthday. Although the Pennsylvania-born soccer player wants to ditch the nickname “Captain America” and leave it only to the legend of Landon Donovan, in reality the Milan player has become the standard for the golden generation of the United States.

Although Mexico was the last winner of the Gold Cup, the country of the Stars and Stripes has dominated the region and evidence of this can be seen in the recent meetings between the two at national team level. Pulisic was one of the main people responsible for the Americans’ great series of successes against the “Tricolor”.

He scored four goals in the United States’ last three games against Mexico, including a brace in the Concacaf Nations League semifinals that helped the Americans reach the final and win their second title in the competition.

However, one of the greatest moments was when he responded to Guillermo Ochoa’s words. The Mexican goalkeeper said that Mexico was the mirror in which he wanted to see the country of the stars and stripes. The attacker scored a goal in the qualifying game and celebrated it with a T-shirt that read “Man in the Mirror.”

There is no shortage of trophies

Despite being just 25 years old, Pulisic has some titles of major importance to his name, including the two Concacaf Nations League titles he won in 2021 and 2023, although he also has success at club level.

Pulisic became the second American footballer to win the Champions League when Chelsea defeated Guardiola’s Manchester City in the title clash in the 2020-2021 season. Shortly afterwards he would also win the Club World Cup.

The new challenges for Pulisic

Now the American has left the “Blues” after a disastrous season and is starting new challenges with Milan, which will try to be the protagonist of the Champions League, in a group that includes the Dortmund of his compatriot Giovanni Reyna, the strong PSG and Newcastle belong. Great season in the Premier League.

Furthermore, Pulisic will try to be an important part of Stefano Pioli’s plan and win the Italian Serie A title. The start was encouraging, but was neutralized in the last duel by the 5-1 victory that the Rossoneros suffered against Inter.
