Christian Pulisic is the player with the biggest name in the USMNT’s roster, but that has only boosted his leadership in the team as he know’s that somewhat like “Spiderman”, wearing the #10 jersey for the squad, comes with a great responsibility, specially during a World Cup.

Similarities between Landon Donovan and Christian Pulisic

For a couple of decades, Landon Donovan came to mind whenever someone mentioned the USMNT, and upon his retirement the United States passed through a rough patch, even missing the 2018 World Cup.

While the current times weren’t bright, US Soccer looked towards the future and embarked in a project with the 2026 World Cup in mind, which they are hosting alongside Canada and Mexico.

Christian Pulisic was one of those bright young players that came out of their development system and pointed to be a star, finishing his youth career overseas and becoming an importan player for the biggest clubs in UEFA.

He now wears the #10 jersey in the USMNT and many seem to be pleased that a new “Captain America”, just like Landon Donovan in his time, is now defending the stars and stripes uniform with great skills, but also huge courage and leadership.

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.
