Christian Pulisic to join USMNT for Bolivia friendly

Christian Pulisic is set for his first U.S. Men’s National Team call-up in quite some time.

Interim head coach Dave Sarachan revealed on Wednesday that the Borussia Dortmund attacker would rejoin the USMNT for an upcoming friendly against Bolivia. The U.S. is set to face the South American side on May 28 in Pulisic’s home state of Pennsylvania.

Pulisic hasn’t featured for the U.S. since the now-infamous loss to Trinidad & Tobago last October. He has missed out on a total of three USMNT matches, with the most recent being a 1-0 win over Paraguay in North Carolina.

The Bolivia friendly is one of three set for this summer as the U.S. will take on Ireland and France in June.


  1. Steffen in goal a three man back line of Brooks, Miazga and CCV with Adams on the right and Saief on the left and Mckennie, Acosta(if healthy) CP in the middle and Bobby Wood and Novakovich up top in a 3-5-2

      • He did get the start against Paraguay and assuming it’s going to be a roster close to that one then guessing he would start

    • There are a number of issues with your proposed line-up….
      1) Will Brooks be healthy/fit enough to be considered for the Squad. A serious question since he’s been sidelined for most of the season.
      2) I’m not against using Adams as a RB in a pinch, but to overlook both Yedlin & Moore at their natural positions in favor of a CM is a stretch.
      3) Acosta still isn’t back to playing. You really think he’ll be ready in 4 wks?
      4) Wood is a known entity, and hasn’t been seeing the field with his club. If you’re going to go with a Veteran at least choose one who’s playing.

      IMO, based on where our strengths & weaknesses are in the player pool, our best formation right now is a 4-2-3-1…..

      Subs: Sargent, Manneh/Green, Weah/Arriola, Scott, EPB, Moore

      Let the youth get a real run out. See what we’ve got in the pipeline and where they are in their development.

      • Adams played right wing back for NYRB most of last year and that’s why in a 3-5-2 I chose him over yedlin. I would chose yedlin in a 4 man back line. Brooks started and was subbed early due to a yellow card and tactical change last weekend, not sure how he played but if healthy and he starts going forward I would imagine he’s there. With Acosta if does depend on his health. Listen they ain’t playing a 3-5-2 under this manager anyway he will stick to his 4-1-4-1 so it was just for fun
