The World Cup is literally THE biggest stage you can play on as a footballer. You will have millions of eyes fixated on you as you turn out for your country.
hat this competition always brings is a chance for players to impress their current teams, or even put themselves in the shop window for a potential move, it is literally the best place to perform and showcase your talent, for whatever the reason.
Chelsea have a few players right now who are approaching a crossroads moment in their careers, and it will soon be decision time for many of them. One of them is Christian Pulisic, who’s contract runs out at Chelsea in the summer of 2024.
So, he, and Chelsea, will soon have a big decision to make. If Chelsea are planning on not offering him a contract extension, then they will need to be looking to sell him either in January or the summer. But a great World Cup from Pulisic, could sway any decision, just as a bad World Cup could as well.
It’s like watching potential transfer targets and getting excited by them, Pulisic has the world stage to show what he can do to Chelsea, and perhaps to any other interested clubs who might wish to sign him, should that be the ending scenario here.
ither way, whether it be for form, or for his future, Pulisic will know the importance of having a good World Cup, and to be honest, he needs a run of games to be able to gather some momentum and pick up some good form regardless. There will be many eyes on his USA performances this month, regardless of the reasons.
