UEFA Champions League

Checkout the 10-years Lionel Messi Record, Christian Pulisic Equalled against Porto

USA attacker Christian Pulisic equalled a 10-year Lionel Messi UEFA Champions League record last night.

The United States winger played the complete 90 minutes as the Blues lost 1-0 to Portuguese giants, FC Porto in Spain but progressed on aggregate following last week's 2-0 victory in the first leg.

A constant threat for FC Porto throughout, Christian Pulisic was named Man of the Match after producing an excellent showing in the quarter final.

Pulisic's blend of skill and pace was too much for the Porto defence to handle and they had to resort to stopping him by illegal means and persistently got off without a yellow card.

In total, the Ex-BVB attacker was a fouled eleven times in the match - which is the most in the UEFA Champions league since Barcelona Star Messi was hacked down left, right and centre against Real Madrid.

Along with winning eleven free-kicks, Messi netted twice, including a brilliant solo goal, as Barcelona qualified to the Champions League semi-final at Wembley Stadium.
