USMNT international Christian Pulisic scored a wonderful goal on his Serie A debut as AC Milan beat Bologna 2-0 in their opening match of the 2023-24 campaign.

The 24-year-old scored in the 21st minute to give Milan a two-goal advantage at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.

Pulisic combined with striker Olivier Giroud before unleashing a ferocious strike from outside the area into the left-hand corner. 

He was also involved in Milan’s opening goal, with his cross-field pass knocked back by Tijjani Reijnders for Giroud to finish from close range. 

Pulisic completed his transfer to Milan from Chelsea in a deal worth up to €22million ($24.2m, £18.8m). He signed a four-year deal with the option of a fifth.

Jerseys customised with Pulisic’s name on the back account for 45 per cent of all Milan shirts sold since he signed and he has provided a boost to the club’s season ticket campaign at San Siro.

At Chelsea, Pulisic struggled to nail down a place in the team and was seeking regular playing time ahead of an important few years for the USMNT.

The 2024 Copa America takes place next summer before the U.S. co-host the 2026 World Cup.

He has 60 caps for the USMNT and has scored 25 goals in that period. 

Milan are next in action on Saturday when they play at home to Torino.
