How good could he be, how soon will he be ready to play every week for Dortmund, when should he look to move to a first team elsewhere. This is fine, since he’s 17 and has been playing first-team soccer for less than a year. However, to focus on his future at the expense of his present is to miss the point. Christian Pulisic is already one of the best 11 players the United States has. He was the best player on the field for the USMNT. He’s already here.
