Christian Pulisic Criticised For Calling Out American Fans After Friendly Win

Christian Pulisic Criticised For Calling Out American Fans After Friendly Win
By Gary Connaughton

While we would normally be gearing up for the start of a World Cup at this time of year, there will still be plenty of international action over the next couple of weeks. European teams are taking part in the UEFA Nations League, while other national teams are taking part in friendlies throughout the globe.

The USA were among those to feature yesterday, defeating Morocco 3-0 in a friendly in Cincinnati. It was a good performance from the home side, easily overcoming a side who will be playing at the tournament in Qatar later this year.

The Americans have been drawn in a group alongside England, Iran, and Wales/Ukraine, and while they will now be steadily building towards those fixtures, it seems that all is not well within the group.

Christian Pulisic calls out USA fans

The performance last night may have been a strong one, but there was some disharmony after the final whistle. Having played in front of a crowd that was seemingly largely made up of Moroccan supporters, captain Christian Pulisic called out the USA fans for not showing up to the stadium in large numbers.

To be honest, for whatever reason, I’m not super happy with the amount of Americans here.

However that works out, if I’m being completely honest. But thanks to the ones who did come, and the support is always great from them.

But yeah, it’s nice to be back in America and playing again.

However, many people criticised the Chelsea player for his comments.

At a time when the cost of living is spiralling in the country, the United States Soccer Federation have come under heavy criticism for charging extortionate prices for international fixtures. The cheapest ticket for last night's fixture was around $76 plus fees.

This issue, along with the geography of America making it difficult for supporters to travel to home games, meant Christian Pulisic was called out for the lack of awareness in relation to the difficulties faced by the fans.

The USA are set to face Uruguay in a friendly in Kansas on Sunday, coming under criticism for the price of tickets once again.

After that, they will open their defence of their CONCACAF Nations League title with a game against Grenada.
