Speaking to a small group of US based reporters in west London ahead of the USMNT's game against England on Thursday, Pulisic was calm and quiet ahead of his return and the Borussia Dortmund star seems to have grown up quite a bit.

Sancho, who left Manchester City in search of improved first-team football in 2017, has registered five goals and eight assists for Dortmund this season, helping them to the top of the Bundesliga.

The American midfield of the future could be on the field together for the first time at Wembley: Pulisic, 19-year-old Tyler Adams and 20-year-old Weston McKennie, perhaps joined by Tim Weah, the 18-year-old son of former FIFA Player of the Year - and current Liberia president - George Weah.

"As much as I understand the link, especially given Jurgen Klopp is the Liverpool manager, which is why it keeps coming up, I don't think he moves just yet".

Liverpool continue to be linked with the player but it would be interesting to see where he'd fit in if he does end up moving to Anfield as Klopp already has the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri at his disposal.


Asked about Sancho's decision to move to Germany, he continued: "Sometimes you have to take a risk if you want great things to happen".

"I went through the exact same things as him", Pulisic said.

"A guy like him has had such a successful career, that's something I can look at and I want to be just like that".

England, the Premier League, is a league where lots of kids dream of playing so there is no reason why maybe one day I won't play here.

"I'm still enjoying every moment of it", he said. "They've got to come in and they've got to show what they can do it and be competent with it". "We also still have a lot to learn".
