Summary

  • Pulisic became the Bundesliga's youngest-ever American goalscorer
  • The 17-year-old is the fourth-youngest top-flight scorer of all-time
  • The Pennsylvanian teenager is also the youngest Bundesliga goalscorer born outside of Germany

Freshly-capped USMNT international Christian Pulisic cannot seem to stop breaking records this season. The 17-year-old Borussia Dortmund star set a few new ones against Hamburger SV on Sunday…

After 38 minutes of deadlock at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, Pulisic opened the scoring in BVB's eventual 3-0 win over Bruno Labbadia's side, becoming the fourth-youngest Bundesliga goalscorer at 17 years and seven months of age.

The attacking midfielder made US history last month when he scored in Jürgen Klinsmann's side's 4-0 win over Guatemala, becoming the youngest American to score in a FIFA World Cup qualifier, and his goal against Hamburg means he is also the youngest American ever to score in Germany's top flight.

Pulisic is also the youngest non-German to score in the Bundesliga. BVB teammate Nuri Sahin was 17 years and 82 days when he first scored for Die Schwarzgelben, but despite playing for Turkey, the now-27-year-old was born in North Rhine-Westphalia.
