Christian Pulisic To Rejoin USMNT Squad For The First Time Since November

Borussia Dortmund attacker Christian Pulisic is due to link up with the United States national team for the first time since their failure to qualify for the World Cup. The North American nation suffered a surprise lose to Trinidad & Tobago in their final qualifier game and this eventually cost them a place in the global tournament for the first time in eight editions.

Since then, Pulisic has been offered an extended break from the national side and he was excluded out of the recent international friendly against Paraguay in March. Speaking in a press conference, interim coach Dave Sarachan confirmed that Pulisic will rejoin his compatriots in training in May following Borussia Dortmund’s post-season friendly in the United States.

Weston Mckennie Ready To Prove His Worth With The USMNT

Schalke 04 midfielder Weston McKennie is hoping to prove his worth on the international stage with the USA national team after making himself a first-team regular in the Bundesliga this term. The 19-year-old, who recently recovered from a knee problem, played the entire 90 minutes during his club’s 1-0 triumph over Mainz, which ensured that the Royal Blues remained second behind run-away leaders Bayern Munich.


Speaking after the game, the Texas native was asked about his hopes of another a recall to the USA squad, to which he replied: “You never know because we have good people in the preliminary roster. We also have young people that are coming up that are always making an impact, making a statement whenever they do come in. It’ll be exciting if I do get the call-up. I hope I do, and if I do then I’ll prove I belong there.”
