Christian Pulisic became the first American to score in a Champions League semifinal, and went some way to giving himself the opportunity to be the first American to appear in a Champions League Final by giving Chelsea an away goal in a 1-1 draw against Real Madrid.

It wasn’t that long ago that people were wondering if Pulisic would fit in Thomas Tuchel’s plans at Chelsea. The calm nature of this finish demonstrates a world class nose for the net. We spend a lot of time shitting on the USMNT, and a lot of the time it’s deserved. But it’s good to keep in mind that it does contain one, genuine world-class player, which it hadn’t before.

We can't be too careful. Two guys in an airport...talking? It's a little fishy.
