Captain America can’t be stopped! — Christian Pulisic scores in fourth-straight game for AC Milan

Christian Pulisic scored for a fourth game in-a-row with AC Milan as he found the back of the net against Verona in the Rossoneri’s 3-1 Serie A victory on Sunday.

This is becoming a weekly occurrence for us at The18 to cover a Pulisic goal. We absolutely love it. He now has 12 goals this season which breaks his record in one season of 11 set in 2019-20 with Chelsea.

Milan visited Verona, 15th in Serie A, and took care of business climbing to second in the league table with the win.

Pulisic shined again on Milan’s right wing and nearly scored the opening goal in the first half when his effort from close-range rattled Verona’s crossbar.

The American would get his goal in the second half. In the 50th minute Noah Okafor pickpocketed Verona’s backline and was in on goal. His initial shot was saved, however Pulisic was crashing in on goal and was johnny on the spot for a simple tap in.

The American’s red-hot form continues as Sunday’s game marks his fourth-straight with a goal. Pulisic found the back of net in both legs of Milan’s Round of 16 ties vs. Slavia Praha and scored the winner vs. Empoli in Milan’s previous league game.

Pulisic now has 20 goal contributions on the season with 12 goals and eight assists.

Milan manager Stefano Pioli made the interesting decision to substitute Pulisic in the 66th minute right after his side’s 2-0 lead had been cut in half. 

Pulisic had failed to control the ball with his chest which Verona’s Tijjani Noslinn took full advantage of and smashed into the net. Pulisic was visibly frustrated and was seen hitting the roof of the dugout after coming out.

USMNT fans won’t complain too much about Pulisic getting pulled early from the game. Recent injuries to Josh Sargent and Luca de la Torre will have USMNT supporters hoping no one else goes down with any injuries before the international break.

Milan held on for the victory with Pulisic’s usual replacement Samuel Chukwueze scoring with a spectacular effort.

Pulisic’s next game will be with the Stars and Stripes on Thursday in the Concacaf Nations League semifinal vs. Jamaica at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
