He captained the USA to glory in Denver after Mexico led them to overtime, but they bounced back and won the game.

Despite conceding in the first minute, Pulisic came back twice to take the game into extra time.

And in the 114th minute, Pulisic was the man who led his country to glory with the decisive goal. He took the lead from the penalty spot and shot into the top corner past Guillermo Ochoa to put the United States 3-2 ahead and Mexico had no response.

Pulisic was brought down in the box in the 108th minute by Carlos Salcedo after cutting inside the box, and it took referee John Pitti to look at the video review before opting to award the spot kick.

Speaking after the game Pulisic said ” I said ‘I’m going to go out and swinging and put this top bins and I’m going to go for it’ and sure enough it went in,” Pulisic told CBS Sports on his winning penalty.

“This is the perfect way to end the year, honestly. I’m so proud, I’m so proud of this group, we needed everyone today. It was a phenomenal performance.”
