Pulisic Gives Every U.S. Soccer Fan A Heart Attack Going Down Injured But Appears Injury Isn’t Serious

The United States men’s national team has its three biggest games in half a decade right around the corner. Three World Cup qualifiers against Mexico, Panama and Costa Rica to punch a ticket to Qatar 2022. The soccer gods have been anything but kind to the USMNT’s chances with injuries to top players Weston McKennie and Sergiño Dest that will see them miss the three qualifying games.

When Christian Pulisic went down injured vs. Middlesbrough on Saturday every American soccer fan felt their heart drop to their stomach. Two minutes before halftime Pulisic went to control a pass only for his foot to slip out from under him and fall awkwardly.

Pulisic Injury vs Middlesbrough

After receiving some treatment Pulisic went back out to finish the first half. I was shocked to see America’s star forward come out for the second half. Pulisic would play for 23 minutes of the second half and he didn’t look comfortable. He walked gingerly and appeared to have an ever-lasting grimace on his face.

American Chelsea fans have never been happier to see Pulisic’s number appear on the substitution board than when Timo Werner replaced him in the 68th minute.

Time will tell how fit Pulisic is for Thursday’s clash at Azteca with Mexico. USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter has already had to make one last-minute replacement bringing in George Bello to replace Dest.

As for Chelsea the Blues cruised into the FA Cup semifinals defeating Middlesbrough 2-0. First half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Hakim Ziyech secured the victory for Chelsea.
