The USA winger recorded his first-ever Champions League goal, after assisting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's opener in the last-16 second leg

It's been a big day so far for Christian Pulisic. 

The 18-year-old winger was handed a start in the biggest match of the season to date for Borussia Dortmund, and made it count with a goal and assist in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie against Benfica on Wednesday. 

Raul on Pulisic: 'I love his game'

Pulisic, who replaced the injured Marco Reus in the starting XI, scored his first-ever Champions League goal in the 59th minute. The American received the ball six yards out from the net, and chipped it over the on-rushing Benfica goalkeeper Ederson 

Dortmund came into the match against Benfica trailing 1-0 on aggregate, but it took BVB just four minutes into the home leg to pull level. Pulisic was handed the assist on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's opener, flicking a corner to his teammate for an unmarked header

Dortmund went on to win the match 4-0.
