Christian Pulisic 60 Minutes Feature

Christian Pulisic, the wonder kid and new star for the United States national team who plays for Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga will be featured on 60 Minutes this weekend. But if you haven't seen this Vice Sports documentary on Pulisic you should watch it first. Here's a preview of the Pulisic interview with the kid showing you a few tricks. Yes, he can shoot with his right and left foot.

 

Full 60 Minutes interview and profile of Pulisic is here. The Young American. I think one thing that really helped Pulisic is his parents obviously care about him and want him to be the best soccer player that he can be, but they also seem to have the ability to laugh and have fun. They challenged him, Pulisic challenged himself, but they had fun and supported him all the way.

 

Here's the Borussia Dortmund manager talking about Pulisic's talent and ability on the ball. What makes Pulisic stand out and makes him so valuable is he takes players on. He's not afraid to go at a defender and that make him tough to defend. And there aren't many players in the world who dribble at defenders and really challenge them.

 

The World Cup is the big test for Pulisic though, if the United States can qualify of course. And while he's still only 18 years old, he's becoming the focus on the U.S. team and they will need him to create and score goals. I think he's up for the battle and will do just that at the World Cup in Russia.

This is what U.S. national team coach Bruce Arena said about Pulisic:

"It makes you think he is going to be perhaps the first American superstar in the sport," says Arena. "I'm willing to say that." Pressed by Alfonsi that there are many who are hedging on this prediction, Arena replies. "You have to be hesitant about this but this is a very talented young man."

Pulisic's favorite player growing up was Luis Figo - when he played for Real Madrid:

“Luis Figo was my favourite player growing up,” said Pulisic. “I always watched him and wanted to be a similar player. He was awesome to watch."

From the 60 Minutes story we also learned how much money Christian Pulisic is making playing soccer in Germany for Dortmund: $8 million per year. That would top what any player in the MLS is making, with Kaka and Sebastian Giovinco making about $7 million per year.
