Christian Pulisic is 18-years-old and plays for the U.S. national soccer team. For fourteen months Pulisic’s been playing first-team pro soccer. The Washington Post said that Pulisic is one of the most technologically gifted American men soccer players seen in awhile.
Teammate, Jozy Altidore has been making sure Pulisic has been carrying water bottles to practice and picking up the equipment afterwards. This isn’t punishment. This is to keep Pulisic humble and focused. Especially while people have been comparing him to many great soccer players. “We have to make sure he keeps working hard and keeps his feet on the ground,” Altidore said. ” hopefully, everybody does a good job of just letting him be himself. Letting him play, let him fail, let him recover again so that he can understand what it’s like to be on both sides.”
