From the publisher:
Pulisic's rise from his childhood in Hershey, PA, to captain of the US national team and Champions League glory is ultimately a story about a life-long determination to realise a dream. Growing up in an area without role models Pulisic would look to Portuguese midfielder Figo for inspiration and European soccer as his ultimate goal. He talks candidly about his journey so far sharing experiences from behind the scenes playing for club and country; his most memorable career moments; the challenges of moving to a new country (without knowing the language); training drills he's used over the years to hone his skills; and his daily life as a soccer player.
Photographs from his family albums and from some of the world s best sports photographers document Pulisic's path from his first visit to Chelsea at age 7 to signing for the club for a record transfer fee when he turned 20 to his defence of the Champions League title and preparation for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Featuring dressing room anecdotes and heart-warming stories, this fascinating look into the world of a quiet American turned soccer star is the perfect book for anyone with a passion for the beautiful game.
Christian Pulisic is an American soccer player who plays as an attacking midfielder and forward for Chelsea Football Club and the United States national team.
