Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has been called up to be part of the US team for their CONCACAF Nations League games.
The United States will face Cuba in Washington D.C. on Friday and then face another trip to Toronto to face Canada on Oct. 15, and Pulisic is excited ahead of the two games against CONCACAF foes.
“We expect tough games. Against Cuba it is a nice home game in DC, we want to show everyone what this young group is about and what we can do and what we are looking like going forward. It’s a really big time for us,” Pulisic told Pro Soccer Talk.
“I think Canada should be really exciting as well because they have a good young team too. I’m really excited.”
Pulisic has found games hard to get by at Chelsea, and he has now revealed that the international break came at a right time so he can gain more minutes and experience with the national team.
“I’m going to work and try earn my position on that team, like always, and I’m going to keep fighting,” Pulisic said.
“When I go there [the USMNT] I want to get minutes and gain more international experience. It can only help me here at Chelsea.”
Speaking of the US national team, Pulisic said: “It is a pretty similar squad, we have good American players, a mixture of guys playing overseas and in MLS. I think it’s a great group of guys.”
