- Pulisic scored twice for the US in World Cup qualifying.
- Youngest US international to score in qualifier, and to score a brace.
- 17-year-old already the holder of many records for club and country.
Borussia Dortmund's attacking midfielder Christian Pulisic is racking up the records for the USMNT as he helped them to a comfortable 6-0 win over Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
The 17-year-old, who already made history as the youngest USMNT goalscorer when he struck in a friendly against Bolivia last year, became not only the youngest player to score for his country in an official World Cup qualifier, he then added a second for good measure to be the youngest scorer of a brace.
Watch: Pulisic's indelible mark on the Bundesliga:
He entered the game at half-time with his team already 3-0 ahead, replacing Borussia Mönchengladbach's versatile star Fabian Johnson. His goal made it 4-0 before he set up the fifth and, in stoppage time, put the cherry on top of another show-stopping performance.
Pulisic became the youngest player in the Bundesliga to score two goals in a season last term and he is looking forward to skittling even more records for club and country in years to come. "I'm delighted that, for example, I can train with the likes of Mario Götze and Andre Schürrle - I learn a great deal from them since they've already experienced a lot in their careers," Pulisic told the German newspaper,Ruhrnachrichten.
Watch: Pulisic's keepy-uppy challenge during BVB's media days:
"I'm convinced we're going to have a really, really strong team and I'm looking forward to fighting for my place on it. The most important thing for me is that we're successful and if I can play as many minutes as possible at the same time, that would be perfect."
And the more minutes Pulisic gets to play, the more records he can break for club and country.
