Christian Pulisic, Captain America of the United States and enemy number one in Mexico
On Monday 18 September, Christian Captain America Pulisic celebrated his 25th birthday. Although the Pennsylvania-born footballer wants to get rid of the superhero nickname leaving it only for the legend of Landon Donovan, it is undeniable that the AC Milan player has become a standard for the golden generation from the United States.
Despite Mexico currently holding the Gold Cup trophy, it has been the USMNT who have dominated the region in terms of soccer success, as the results from recent meetings show. During these games, Pulisic has been one of the main players responsible for the fine streak of form that the Americans have against El Tri.
Pulisic made fun of Mexico legend Guillermo Ochoa
The former Chelsea man has scored four goals in the last three matches that the United States have played against Mexico, including a double in the semi-finals of the Concacaf Nations League that took the Americans to the final, which they eventually won.
