Christian Pulisic is without any doubt one of the greatest talents the US has ever produced. It's safe to say he carries much of the USMNT's hopes at Qatar 2022, which is why his injury against Iran in the World Cup group finale has everyone worried.
The Chelsea star scored the winner that sent the United States Men's National Team to the round of 16, but suffered a hard knock in the process. Pulisic played through pain in the last few minutes of the first half, waiting until the break to be subbed off.
The No. 10 may not be wearing the captain's armband in the tournament, but everyone understands how important he is for the Stars and Stripes. If not, this stat should speak for itself.
