Pulisic scores in fourth straight, breaks personal goal record with Verona finish

Christian Pulisic of AC Milan scores his team's second goal during the Serie A TIM match between Hellas Verona FC and AC Milan at Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi on March 17, 2024 in Verona, Italy. 

In front of goal, things have never been better for Christian Pulisic.

The U.S. men’s national team attacker scored his 12th goal of the season for AC Milan, getting on the scoresheet for the fourth straight match as the Rossoneri defeated Hellas Verona 3-1.

Pulisic has been on a superb run over the past month, posting five goals and two assists in Milan’s last seven matches, and has drawn three red cards for opposing players to boot.

Sunday’s strike at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi might have been the easiest goal of the bunch. Noah Okafor did most of the heavy lifting on what would eventually be the match-winner, stripping Verona’s Paweł Dawidowicz near midfield in the 50th minute.

The Switzerland forward would sprint away and go for goal himself only for Lorenzo Montipò to make a save at the near post.

Unfortunately for the Verona goalkeeper, the player to win the race for the rebound was Pulisic, who calmly tapped the loose ball into the empty net.

The tally takes Pulisic up to 12 goals and eight assists in all competitions, following up on goals against Empoli and Slavia Prague, who saw the USMNT star get on the scoresheet in both legs of a Europa League last-16 tie. Per Opta, no other American in a top-five league has scored in four straight games since at least 2010.
