USMNT boosted by Pulisic return
Members of the US team are feeling confident ahead of two key Qatar 2022 qualifying games with the return of Chelsea's Christian Pulisic offering a boost.
Christian Pulisic is back in action for the US national team as they take on Mexico and Jamaica in World Cup qualifiers. His return has been warmly received by his team mates but less so enthused is Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.
"He absolutely wants to come back, but it's a matter of pain management, not re-injury or being still injured," Tuchel added.
"It's just that it's still painful. But he tried so hard and wanted desperately to come back and we needed him to come back. But yes, we are a bit worried.
"Hopefully ... he doesn't get carried away with emotion by helping his country to win a super important match. Hopefully it all goes well and the minutes will elevate him and he comes back stronger."
