How did Christian Pulisic become so technically elegant with the soccer ball at his foot? Pulisic grew up playing futsal and indoor soccer and playing in tight spaces and spent time with the ball on his own perfecting his skills. Pulisic is quickly becoming a star for Chelsea in the English Premier League as he gains confidence and earns more trust from his teammates and manager, Frank Lampard.
What stands out about Pulisic is how he drives at defenders with the soccer ball and can score with either foot. The American challenged himself at a young age when he joined up with Borussia Dortmund in Germany, a soccer club known for developing young talent and giving them more playing time. It’s easy to forget just how young Pulisic is and how much more potential he has in the game.
Pulisic is so gifted at dribbling past defenders and turning away from pressure that he’s already being fouled at a high rate. But he seems to be able to ride tackles and avoid the most brutal tackles that are increasingly coming he’s way.
