Pulisic: Time for USMNT to prove ourselves at Copa América

    DALLAS --  Christian Pulisic said that the experience gained by the U.S. men's national team over the last several years has it ready to achieve a higher level of success, starting with the 2024 Copa América .

    The U.S. is scheduled to open the tournament, which it is hosting for the second time, on Sunday against Bolívia. And Pulisic is keen to have that match be the start of a deep run, and show the world the progress the team has made.

    "Now it's time to prove ourselves," the forward told reporters Friday. "I think we've learned a lot. We've put some good performances in the World Cup. We've shown people that, OK, this team can play.

    "And now it's about not just putting in those performances, but finding a way to get results in the biggest matches. That's the next step for us."

    "And if you ask anyone, I'm not the most vocal person on or off the field at all. So when I need to say something, I hope that I have a voice that people will listen to. That's my goal. I don't say much. I try to just put my head down and work and work and I hope that people around see that and that can have a domino effect on everyone."

    Pulisic enters the tournament coming off the best club season of his career with AC Milan. Not only did he deliver 12 goals and eight assists in league play, but he also logged over 3,000 minutes, showing a durability that had eluded him during his time in the English Premier League with Chelsea. That has only added to his confidence.

    "It was massive for me to experience that and know that I can do it, that I can keep myself healthy for most of the season," he said. "I can put in consistent good performances and it helps me a ton coming into the tournament feeling like this and to say whether it's my best season ever or whatnot.

    "It's easy to look at stats and stuff, but I enjoyed the season a lot and I feel really confident and good coming into this tournament for sure."
