The United States have an upcoming friendly match against Mexico this Friday, and Chelsea star Christian Pulisic was asked who was the better player between him and Mexico superstar Hirving “Chucky” Lozano, now at Napoli.

Pulisic responded by saying that he isn’t Ibra as he refused to answer the question.

Pulisic said according to Associated Press: “I’m not going to give you like an Ibra answer here. I’ll never be comfortable. I don’t like being in front of cameras, I’m still getting used to it, I guess.”

Lozano as well was very respectful when talking about Pulisic and praised the 20-year-old.

“He’s a great player, he was at Borussia Dortmund, now he’s at Chelsea,” said Lozano in an interview with TUDN.

“He’s a player with a lot of quality. I’ve seen him play and he plays well, so it’s nice that they compare me to him.”

It was Mexico who defeated the United States two months ago and stopped them from lifting the Gold Cup, and the two sides will meet again in Friday’s friendly , with Lozano believing the U.S. will see this game as a chance to revenge.

“It’s going to be really nice and difficult because they are going to think that it is revenge,” Lozano said. “It’ll be a very good game.”
