Christian Pulisic – USA
“The Olympic Games are of course a great honor to take part in them and it will be a wonderful thing to represent your country in the Olympics,” Politsch told ProSoccerTalk.
“I totally support the players in the qualifiers now. It’s something I thought about and wanted to play. Obviously I can’t control what exactly is going on and what is best for me at that time, I can’t say. But it’s something I would like to participate in.” “.
The American Olympic team continues to compete in the Olympic finals tournament in North America at the present time.
The American team has booked its seat in the golden square, as it needs to beat its opponent in the semi-finals to return to participate in the Olympiad after the absence of the last two editions, as the two finalists qualify directly.
If the US team qualifies for the Olympics, the Chelsea winger will have to choose between participating in the Gold Cup or the Tokyo Olympics.
The Gold Cup – the African Nations Cup draw in North America – ends 6 days before the final match of the Tokyo Olympics next summer.
US national team coach Greg Berhalter said: “I am not the one who answers this question about the players in the Olympics, the person who answers this question is the players’ clubs. We should sit down and have these conversations with these clubs. Do you want to release your players to participate in the Olympiad.” The Olympics, and what will they say? It is an uphill battle we are fighting. ”
Pulisic may repeat what Neymar did in the 2016 Rio Olympics when Barcelona reached an agreement with the Brazilian Federation in the absence of Neymar from the Centennial Copa America in exchange for his participation in the Rio Olympics.
The number 10 player at the time led his country to win the only title absent from its coffers.
Pulisic (22 years) is entitled to participate in the Olympiad without assigning his country a seat to the elderly, and the same is the case for a large number of players in the American team, most notably Weston McKinney of Juventus, Giovanni Reina of Borussia Dortmund, Sergino Dest of Barcelona and Tyler Adams of Red Bull Leipzig.
The American winger played 34 games with the first team shirt, during which he scored 14 goals and won the Gold Cup in 2019.
