Christian Pulisic and Jürgen Klinsmann feel the same way about the USA missing out on qualification for the 2018 World Cup. United States ended fifth in the CONCACAF qualifying group - missing out by just one point.

Earlier this week, Klinsmann said that he believes he could have taken the USA to Russia and Christian Pulisic agrees with him.

“I think we had a great team, I don’t see a reason why we couldn’t have qualified for the World Cup in 2018," the Chelsea player said. "I don’t have anything bad to say about Klinsmann but I am really thankful for everything that he gave me.”

The United States lost their first two qualifying games against Mexico and Costa Rica, which cost Klinsmann his job.
