The USMNT had an iconic 2-0 victory against Mexico Friday night with Christian Pulisic scoring the game’s opening goal. During Captain America’s celebration he revealed a message written on his undershirt that had fans asking: “What did Pulisic’s shirt say?”
Pulisic pulled out one of the most badass undershirt reveals since Mario Balotelli’s “Why always me?” shirt.
The undershirt that Pulisic wore had the written message of “Man in the mirror” written on it. So, why did he write this?
Pulisic’s shirt is a glorious rebuttal to a quote from Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. The Mexico keeper told TUDN in an interview that the USMNT dreams of being El Tri and that the team wishes to look in a mirror and see themselves as Mexico.

Pulisic then had the most massive cajones on planet Earth to wear an undershirt for the game with a written message of “Man in the mirror.” The Chelsea ace knew he wouldn’t start but still had the confidence of knowing he could score in this game if brought on.
Captain America delivered.
