Tomorrow the USMNT will make its debut in Qatar. The opponent is Gareth Bale's Wales. There is a lot of confidence around the American national team, the movement is growing and the squad is full of talents who already play in the top European leagues. Three of the stars of USMNT is certainly Christian Pulisic. He is certainly the most awaited player of the tournament. A World Cup for Pulisic that could also be decisive for his future.

In his debut against Wales Pulisic will start on the left in support of Ferreira with probably Reyna on the other side of the pitch. Gregg Berhalter leverages Pulisic a lot, on his qualities but also on his desire for revenge. We have to admit, it's not an easy time for the Chelsea player. The last few seasons in London have not been the best, at least on a personal level, for the US champion. Pulisic has paid a lot for the changes of coaches and the various non-football events that have swept the London club.

In fact, Pulisic has often been included in market rumors that saw him as a bargaining chip to reach other players. The latest in chronological order is that relating to Chelsea's interest in Rafael Leao. The Milan striker is a target of the London club which has also offered Pulisic to Milan as a technical counterpart. A sign that the American is no longer untouchable.

Also for this reason, Berhalter focuses a lot on Pulisic's desire to show off, both to deny all the rumors concerning him, change Chelsea's mind and in any case demonstrate all his value in a competition that is there for all to see. world clubs.

USMNT expects a lot from Pulisic that he mustn't be pressed too much but that at the same time he must return to shine for the national team and for himself.
