Christian Mate Pulisic (Croatian pronunciation: [krǐstijan mǎːte pǔːliːʃitɕ]; born September 18, 1998) is an American professional soccer player who plays as an attacking midfielder or a winger for Premier League club Chelsea and the United States national team.
Born in Hershey, Pennsylvania, Pulisic began his professional career at Borussia Dortmund, where, after fast progression through the team's youth academy, in which he featured in only 15 youth games, he was promoted to the senior team in 2016, at age 17. He featured sparingly in his first season at the club, but his involvement increased dramatically in the following campaign, where he was a mainstay in the Dortmund team that won the 2016–17 DFB-Pokal.
After three seasons of first-team football at Borussia Dortmund, Pulisic moved to Chelsea in January 2019 in a transfer worth €64 million ($73 million/£58 million), making him the most expensive American player of all time.
Pulisic holds several Bundesliga and Dortmund records; he is the youngest non-German to score in the league, the youngest player to score two Bundesliga goals, and is the youngest player to appear and score for Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League.
A U.S. international, Pulisic has scored 10 goals in 25 games for his country. He has appeared and scored at every youth level, and made his senior debut in March 2016, at age 17. Later that year, Pulisic featured at the Copa América Centenario, before he became the youngest person to appear and score in a World Cup Qualifier for the United States. Pulisic has also featured as team captain; their youngest ever.
