Christian Pulisic is a big game player.
The American playmaker has Chelsea up 1-0 early in the FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium with a slick and clinical bit of work in the 18 to cap off a team goal for the Blues.

Pulisic, 21, drove the center of the pitch and pushed a pass to Mason Mount on the left. He then swerved left then right to meet Olivier Giroud’s lay off, darting past a wary Kieran Tierney.
He finished the play with a cut shot to the other side of a diving Emiliano Martinez, the Blues going up 1-0 before the clock hit 5:00.
It’s his 11th goal for Chelsea across all competitions and first in the FA Cup.
He is just the third American to play in an FA Cup final after John Harkes and Tim Howard.
