Altidore: Pulisic makes me want to play longer
Hidden deep in an interview regarding his diet -- interesting reading in itself -- is a nugget from Jozy Altidore that shows the USMNT recognizes the unique talent of Christian Pulisic.
The 27-year-old Altidore has accolades in his own right, which makes his praise extra special. Altidore has a legit shot to chase down Landon Donovan and Clint Dempsey as the USMNT’s all-time leading scorers, and has played in La Liga, the Premier League, and the Eredivisie.

But when asked about Pulisic, the teenager with about 90 less caps and 30 less goals? Man, the kid is going to make a lot of guys want to be on the business end of his playmaking.
Truly high praise from Altidore, who continues to feast on MLS defenses.
