Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Pulisic, Weah, and more

Christian Pulisic’s Serie A campaign came to a close on Saturday with the U.S. men’s national team star adding to his already impressive stat line this season.

Pulisic assisted once in AC Milan’s 3-3 home draw with Salernitana, logging 90 minutes from his right midfield position. The 25-year-old won seven duels, drew one foul, and completed four dribble attempts as the Rossoneri held on for one point in their season finale at the San Siro.

Pulisic’s near post cross in the 77th minute was finished off by Davide Calabria, giving AC Milan a 3-1 lead. However, Salernitana would fight back to tie the match with only minutes to play.

Pulisic’s first season in Serie A ends with the attacker totaling 15 goals and 11 assists in all competitions. Now after a positive end to his club campaign, Pulisic will focus on upcoming USMNT involvement this June.

In Italy, Tim Weah went the distance in a 2-0 Serie A win for Juventus. Tanner Tessmann scored in the Serie B promotion playoffs as Venezia advanced in the competition.

In Scotland, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Celtic lifted the Scottish Cup over rivals Rangers.

  1. Milan fans are going expect even more out of Pulisic next season. Hope he is ready for that.

    Absolutely a stellar first season for him. Excited to see what he does in the Copa America.

      • Also seems Thiago Motta is headed to Juventus, which should make them much much more entertaining.

      • That would be horrible but I am guessing Tuchel’s stock is pretty low after destroying his third powerhouse in a row. Maybe “destroy” is a bit harsh but he did something three times in a row and it was the opposite of good.

      • ” I am guessing Tuchel’s stock is pretty low after destroying his third powerhouse in a row.”

        I don’t think his stock is that low.

        Bayern had been a shit show before he got there and he just happen to have the bad timing to show up when someone had to hold the bag full of shit. They are like Mexico. They’ve been needing new blood for a while. Kane was just papering over the cracks. After England lose in the Euros again, he’ll try out for the NY Jets as a place kicker. This is the worst Bayern team I’ve seen in a while.

        As for Chelsea, Tuchel just won the Champions League there with a pretty unlikely team.

        Chelsea have only won it twice. That’s a big deal. Mourinho never won it with Chelsea.

        Pulisic laid a big one at Chelsea but I don’t see Tuchel as a failure there. Potter and Pochettino are supposed to be pretty hot shit managers and they did a lot less for Chelsea than Tuchel did. Everyone at that level in the EPL is a failure unless you are Pep or Klopp

        Looking at Chelsea after he left it’s pretty clear that while he might have done better, it’s the same thing as it is with Bayern, the manager is a small cog amidst a bunch of big wheels. The rot has set in and Tuchel is far from the main reason.

        PSG? Tuchel destroyed them? I don’t think so. If they couldn’t dominate Europe with those superstars they have had, you have to think there is something fundamentally wrong with the football side of the organization. I’m sure quozzel would be happy with their financials but money isn’t everything.
