Yunus Musah becomes the youngest USMNT player to play 30 top flight games in Europe

Yunus Musah is enjoying a great season with Valencia. On Saturday, he became the youngest American to reach 30 league appearances in a single campaign in a top five European league aged 18-years and 156 days old.

Valencia and Alavés ended up drawing their Week 33 LaLiga meeting 1-1 at Mestalla. Musah started the game, only to be replaced in the 61st minute by Denis Cheryshev. The United States men’s national team player has scored two goals for Valencia this season across all competitions. His first goal was in LaLiga against Getafe on matchday 8 and his second  was in the first round of the Copa Del Rey against Terrassa FC.
