- Milan held to a goalless draw
- Pulisic came off the bench
- Vowed to make a strong comeback
WHAT HAPPENED? The forward started on the bench on Tuesday evening but was introduced early in the second half, replacing Samuel Chukwueze. However, he had a quiet day at the office and the Rossoneri had to share the spoils in the Group F opener at San Siro.
Despite the draw, Pulisic was happy with his team's performance and promised to bounce back stronger after a disappointing result.
WHAT THEY SAID: "It was a positive match with many opportunities but we couldn't win it. In football, you have to be able to manage defeats but the beauty of such a demanding calendar is having another match right away to prove your worth," he said after the match.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Pulisic has settled down pretty quickly in his new club and has started each of Milan's Serie A matches before Chukwueze was handed his moment to shine in the Champions League opener. He has two goals in four matches in Serie A and should once again slot in the starting XI in the weekend against Verona after Chukwueze failed to capitalise on his opportunity.
