Pulisic joins fellow American DeMarcus Beasley

The 22-year-old has now scored the same amount of Champions League goals as fellow American DeMarcus Beasley to put himself in the joint lead among U.S. players in Europe’s most important tournament. 

Pulisic's impact in the game was felt just five minutes after he came on, when his first shot hit the arm of Krasnodar captain Aleksandr Martynovich, leading the referee to call a penalty kick in the 75th minute, which Timo Werner converted. 

And in the 90th minute Tammy Abraham ran down the right wing to cross the ball to Pulisic who struck the ball fist time to score final goal of the game. It was his first goal of the 2020 UEFA Champions League.
