Christian Pulisic scores on his debut for AC Milan. Pulisic is just 24 years old. A powerful strike from distance that is a bit unusual for Pulisic – who usually scores from closer in. Pulisic’s whole football career lies in front of him. These are really his prime years as a pro. Hopefully he’ll spend a lot of them playing for a top club like AC Milan.
A falling down Olivier Giroud with a lovely outside of the foot layoff to Pulisic. It is wonderful long range strike from Pulisic but the Giroud layoff is worth seeing too.
Pulisic drives in from the outside on the dribble and plays a clever give and go with his old Chelsea teammate. The two seem to have a good understanding of one another and where they want the ball.
Landon Donovan said Pulisic should play in the MLS: “My biggest thing is he needs to play. I know we all said when he went to Chelsea, ‘He’s going to play a lot.’ He didn’t play a lot, especially last year. At Milan. I would think he’s going play a lot but you just don’t know.” Clearly, Pulisic shut down that odd take by Donovan with this excellent debut goal for AC Milan.
I wonder if Pulisc will go on a Lionel Messi like goal scoring and assisting tear. You’d have to think all world footballers are inspired but what Messi is doing now for Inter Miami. Sure, Messi is older and winding down his soccer career, but he still showing why he’s the best to ever play.
I think Pulisic is going to make Chelsea regret not playing him as much as the club should have. Pulisic debut goal for AC Milan should give him a lot of confidence going for with the Italian club.
Lastly, Pulisic talked to Reuters about his goal for AC Milan: “It just felt like the perfect step for my career, I feel really welcome and excited to be part of this club,” Pulisic told DAZN. “For me just a great start personally, nice to get a goal, while a clean sheet and a win are always nice.”
