On Saturday night the United States played Bolivia in a friendly prior to the Copa América. Christian Pulisic took to the pitch for the USMNT in the 63rd minute. It only took him 6 minutes to make history again, when he scored his first international goal in the 69th minute! In that moment he also became the youngest goal scorer in USMNT modern history. Darlington Nagbe fed Pulisic the ball and the youngster coolly took the shot and scored a beauty.
