With the European and Mexican-based players in Miami this week for the transition camp having completed their club seasons,ussoccer.com will review their individual campaigns ahead of the selection of the Copa America Centenario roster. So far, we have covered the goalkeepers, defenders and midfielders. Today we finish with the forwards.
Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund): At only 17-years-old and the youngest player on the Copa America Centenario roster, the Borussia Dortmund prospect had a historic year in Germany. After breaking into the first team in January, Pulisic scored against Hamburg in April, becoming the fourth youngest player to score a Bundesliga goal. A week later against Stuttgart, he notched his second and became the quickest player to two goals in Bungesliga history. He also made three appearances in Dortmund's run to the Europa League quarterfinals. After a second place finish domestically, Pulisic will get his chance to experience Champions League football next season.
Bobby Wood (Union Berlin): When top flight clubs come calling your name after a season's end, it's been a good campaign. That's exactly how the season went for Bobby Wood. He ran rampant for 2.Bundesliga side Union Berlin, scoring a U.S. record 17 goals and adding 4 assists. His goal tally was good enough to rank third top scorer in the league. Bundesliga clubs took notice of his fine form, and Wood signed a four-year contract with Hamburger SV earlier this month.
