He's a smart player, and unfortunately the U.S. needs more of these players.
His focus has been getting playing time at Borussia Dortmund, a task frustrated by injuries.
"It's tough. I had some injuries going on and off, and I got some games that I missed out", Pulisic he said Wednesday.
"He is being a bigger part of the team now and is doing a great job with that. The boys banter me sometimes, the way I speak, but that's just what comes with it". On the night Rooney brought the curtain down on his England career, thoughts drifted back to the frisson of excitement he generated in his youth and it was all because of the young man wearing the No 7 shirt who kept making those darting runs.
The north-west giants have now been handed a huge boost in their pursuit as Pulisic has revealed that he would like to test himself in the Premier League one day as he says it's a league where "lots of kids dream of playing". With a more low-key approach and most players unscarred by past setbacks, England in July unexpectedly reached its first World Cup semifinal in 28 years. We definitely feel that with the young side that we have that we can also do something like that.
After failing to qualify for the World Cup in the summer, the US are now going through a transitional phase under interim coach Dave Sarachan.
Liverpool have a long-standing interest in Pulisic, who joined Dortmund in 2015 when Jurgen Klopp was still in charge. "We are both competitive guys". Adams is expected to move there, too, this winter, leaving MLS's New York Red Bulls for sister club RB Leipzig. "I think guys see that, they want to do the same thing". "We also still have a lot to learn".
"It hasn't been awkward at all", Pulisic said when asked about his time away from the team. They believe in you, they trust you and, even if you're so young, they wouldn't get you out here if they didn't really believe in your ability.
But with a group of talented youngster coming through, being led by the Borussia Dortmund attacker, the 20-year-old is confident that his side can claim a few scalps.
"I'm still enjoying every moment of it", he said.
