With a teenage Marcus Rashford making headlines in England, America's latest 'soccer' wonderkid is already eclipsing his failed predecessors.
Borussia Dortmund's Christian Pulisic scored 20 goals in his 34 under-17 internationals, and two goals in his first nine Bundesliga appearances have now propelled him into the US senior setup.
Last night, in a 4-0 victory over Bolivia, Pulisic netted his first senior international goal - breaking Juan Agudelo's record to become the USA's youngest ever goalscorer.
Speaking after the game, Pulisic described the experience of making US football history in Kansas, and it's probably fair to say he found the whole experience 'amazing'.
It was amazing, I can’t explain it. It’s always amazing just to get on the field, and to score was just incredible. To be able to celebrate with my teammates, and hear the fans, is amazing.
Amazingly, Pulisic wasn't even a professional until five months ago. For more on the amazing start to his career, check out Mikey Traynor's feature on a boy who's quickly becoming one of the most promising talents in European club football.
