Chelsea has won the European Cup for the second time, defeating Manchester City 1-0 in Portugal and making USMNT star Christian Pulisic the second American to claim a UEFA Champions League winner’s medal.

Jovan Kirovski was the first, though he didn’t play in Borussia Dortmund’s 1996-97 triumph over Juventus. Pulisic’s substitute appearance in the 2020-21 final was the first time a USMNT player had hit the pitch.
