WATCH: Christian Pulisic scores amazing goal in Copa America

The U.S. men’s national soccer team was looking for a strong start against Bolivia in its Copa America opener at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and it got thanks to its talented captain.

Christian Pulisic scored a banger of a goal less than three minutes into the game to give the USMNT a 1-0 lead. Pulisic took his shot just inside the 18-yard box and hit the top of the goalmouth for a shot Bolivian goalkeeper Guillermo Viscarra had no chance of stopping.

The goal moves Pulisic into a tie with Brian McBride for the fifth-most goals in USMNT history (30). Eric Wynalda is next on the list with 34 career goals.

The USMNT went on to win, 2-0.
