Football: 'Wonderful' Pulisic delights Klinsmann

LOS ANGELES, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -8th Sept,2016) : United States coach Jurgen Klinsmann has hailed the "wonderful" performance of Christian Pulisic after the teenage starlet's dazzling display in the World Cup qualifying rout of Trinidad and Tobago.

Klinsmann handed the 17-year-old Borussia Dortmund forward his first full start on Tuesday and the USA coach's faith was rewarded with a bewitching performance from Pulisic in a 4-0 victory in Jacksonville.

Although Pulisic failed to score -- having netted twice after coming on a substitute against St Vincent and the Grenadines last week -- the teenager produced another performance which suggested the United States have unearthed a genuine talent.

Klinsmann said he had been persuaded to start Pulisic, who made his debut for Dortmund in January, after watching the youngster up close in training during the Copa America Centenario in June. "We watch every training session.

Obviously the Copa America helped us a lot to bring him along, to feel comfortable with this group of older guys," Klinsmann said. "He was just very mature every session, the way he trained, the way he focused. Aiming for goal, not backing up at all, taking on the physical battles as well."
