Making the Case: Christian Pulisic, 2017 Male Player of the Year

On Tuesday, Dec. 5, U.S. Soccer announced the five nominees for 2017 U.S. Soccer Male Player of the Year. This year’s nominees include forwards Jozy Altidore, Clint Dempsey and Jordan Morris and midfielders Michael Bradley and Christian Pulisic. Each day, ussoccer.com will make a case for each of the candidates. Today is 2016 U.S. Soccer Young Male Player of the Year Christian Pulisic’s turn.

If 2016 was the year Christian Pulisic broke into the U.S. Men’s National Team and Borussia Dortmund first team, 2017 was the young attacker’s coming out party.

The mercurial attacker was a constant thorn in the side for international and Bundesliga opponents throughout the year, menacing defenders and goalkeepers at every turn. Utilized both centrally and out on either wing, Pulisic was the MNT’s biggest offensive contributor in 2017, tallying six goals and four assists in nine matches during the year. Either directly (goal or assist) or indirectly (earning a free kick, rebound on a shot), Pulisic was involved in 13 of the 17 goals scored during the matches he played in for the MNT this season.

On the club front, Pulisic ended his first full season with the Borussia Dortmund first team by recording three goals and three assists in 25 matches across all competitions for the Bundesliga runners-up. Along with featuring for BVB in the UEFA Champions League, Pulisic topped the 2016-17 campaign by earning the game-winning penalty kick in Dortmund’s 2-1 victory against Bayern Munich in the DFB-Pokal Final on May 27. Pulisic has continued to be one of Dortmund’s most influential players this season, racking up three goals and an assist in 19 competitive matches.
