USA’S CHRISTIAN PULISIC: ‘I’LL BE READY FOR SATURDAY, DON’T WORRY’!

By Anne Burke

Christian Pulisic, who scored only goal in the USA’S win that sent them through to the knockout stages of the World Cup, was injured while scoring the goal, which ended with his violent collision with the Iran goalkeeper, forcing him from the game at halftime and then to the hospital for tests.

The injury was described as a pelvic contusion by U.S. Soccer, which said Pulisic was listed as day to day. But it is not expected to keep him out of the Americans’ next game, a round of 16 matchup against the Netherlands on Saturday, an opinion that Pulisic, at least, seems to share.

In a message sent from his hospital bed as soon as the game ended, and accompanied by a fist-pumping photo, he congratulated his teammates on their win and wrote, “I’ll be ready for Saturday don’t worry.”
