UMSNT players in the Champions League: AC Milan vs Newcastle United
The UEFA Champions League returns today with eight group stage fixtures, featuring the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Manchester City.
Also in action on Tuesday are last years semi-finalists AC Milan, who take on Newcastle United at San Siro. Milan have USMNT duo Christian Pulisic and Yunus Musah in their squad for the game.
Both players have considerable experience in the top European leagues but only moved to Milan this summer; Pulisic signed from Chelsea, while Musah joined from LaLiga side Valencia.
This will be both players first taste of Champions League action with AC Milan, although Pulisic has previously faced Milan while playing for Chelsea. In an interview with the Italian club, Pulisic recalled his first taste of the Milan clubs famous atmosphere.
I remember playing here at San Siro in the Champions League and I could not believe what I was seeing before the match even started, Pulisic said.
