Christian Pulisic will become America’s GOAT

18-year-old Christian Pulisic is poised to be the best American soccer player of all-time. The Borussia Dortmund schemer is well on his way to becoming the player Freddy Adu was supposed to be.

Pulisic’s talent is of cosmic proportions, and, rather refreshingly, being thrust into the limelight the past 12 months hasn’t hampered his development, but rather honed his focus.

If Landon Donovan was a torch that brought the United States out of soccer’s dark ages, Christian Pulisic is a military grade halogen bulb that will illuminate the future. Here are the nine reasons why:

Pulisic’s rise has been a rapid one, from when Dortmund picked him in 2013 at Nike junior tournament – the attacking-midfielder won MVP. And it’s no surprise that the American international is now a regular in footballing rumour gossip columns.

Liverpool appear to be the most keen on the player, but would a move to the Premier League make sense? Or can Dortmund finally keep hold of their star players?
