Christian Pulisic scores impressive brace vs. Trinidad & Tobago

He’s pretty good.

It took the United States 52 minutes to break the scoreless deadlock with Trinidad and Tobago, but when a goal was needed who would step up and grab it? Of course it would be the 18-year-old phenom, Christian Pulisic notching his sixth career USMNT goal. The play started with an entry ball into Darlington Nagbe. He found DeAndre Yedlin in space and the fullback centered for Pulisic to slide in. A very nice goal a huge on for the U.S.’ World Cup hopes.

Just a few minutes later and the wunderkind was at it again. Running on to a great ball from Jozy Altidore and clinically finishing to the near post to make it 2-0.
