Christian Pulisic keeps scoring goals, and his confidence is growing by the day.

How much so? Well, he’s expecting a United States men’s national team win on Sunday at Azteca.

Now you might be saying to yourself, “What? Is the kid going to project a loss for his team?” and in some ways you have a point.

But there is no uncertainty coming out of the mouth of Pulisic, who is maturing into a leader in front of our eyes. Here he is after the win on Fox Sports 1.

“Goals they come and go. As long as I just keep working hard, and try to help the team win, they’ll keep coming.

“It’s going to be a tough one down there in Mexico, but we really want some revenge from when they got us earlier this year. We’re really confident, and we’re going to come out of there with a win.”

Pulisic now has seven goals in 15 caps, and is leading the way for the U.S. It’s not quite his team, per se, but there’s no doubt his confidence is more important than any other player’s in terms of driving the proverbial American bus into Mexico.
