World Cup 2022: Tom Brady and Christian Pulisic: USMNT hero gets to live the life of the GOAT for a day

Christian Pulisic is the man of the hour not only for the USMNT at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, it’s the rare day when soccer is at the top of every front page of every sports media outlet covering sports in the United States and the image of the Chelsea striker and his goal is the most used.

What does Christian Pulisic have to learn from Tom Brady?

Perhaps then there are things Pulisic, who scored the only goal as the USMNT defeated Iran 1-0 to punch their ticket to the round of 16 at the World Cup, should learn from Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

TB12 remains the most popular and recognized active sports figure in this country, however, these two characters have a closer and more direct relationship as was demonstrated more than a year ago during the celebration of Super Bowl LV.

On that occasion, which occurred on February 7, 2021, Pulisic was still a few months away from being crowned UEFA Champions League champion for the first time, Chelsea defeated Manchester City until May 29 of that year, but that Sunday Brady’s Bucs faced the Kansas City Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium.

Christian Pulisic’s message to Tom Brady

“I’m going to go with Tampa Bay and Tom Brady,” Pulisic told Fox Soccer minutes before kickoff of Super Bowl LV. “Honestly I like Tampa as a team for a few years and I just think Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T – so I just think he’s going to win again.”

The former husband of Brazilian top model Gisele Bndchen ended up winning his seventh Vince Lombardi Trophy that day by defeating the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes by a resounding 31-9 score, while Pulisic and Chelsea defeated Manchester City 1-0 at Estdio do Drago in Porto, Portugal.

Maybe Pulisic’s big goal is what Brady needs to turn his fortunes around after a poor season by his NFL standards, as he currently has a 5-6 record with the Bucs.
