SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former BYU and current New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson swapped jerseys with U.S. Soccer and Chelsea star Christian Pulisic.

Wilson and the Jets played the Atlanta Falcons at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on Sunday, October 10.

A day later, the Premier League’s Twitter account for the USA shared a photo of the two stars hold each other’s jersey.

Pulisic is a young star for the USMNT and has scored 16 goals in 40 international appearances. He currently plays for Premier League side Chelsea, based out of the West of London. Through 7 games of the Premier League season, Chelsea finds themselves atop the standings and one point clear of second-place Liverpool. He has appeared in one game, scoring one goal thus far this season.

Wilson and the Jets lost to the Falcons, 27-20.

The loss moved New York to a record of 1-4 on the season.

Through the first five games of his NFL career, Wilson has thrown for 1,117 yards, four touchdowns, and nine interceptions with a completion rate of 57.3 percent.

The Jets have a bye week in Week 6.

New York’s next game is on the road against the New England Patriots on Sunday, October 24 at 11 a.m. (MDT). The game will be televised on CBS.
