Christian Pulisic has accomplished a lot for a 17-year-old, and on Friday he secured yet another milestone.
The Hersey, Pennsylvania native entered as a sub during the U.S. men’s national’s team’s World Cup qualifier in the 67th minute and found the back of the net just four minutes later. In the process he became the youngest American player to score a goal in World Cup qualifying history.
Pulisic gathered in a nice pass from Sacha Kljestan and potted home an easy finish to set the new mark. He’s 17 years and 349 days old, which is a record that should stand for a long time. Take a look at his finish:
