The Schalke midfielder didn't take long to make an impact on the international scene, scoring 21 minutes into his debut

Weston McKennie couldn't have asked for a much better introduction to the U.S. men's national team. 

Making his international debut, the 19-year-old scored a fantastic goal just 21 minutes into his side's friendly against Portugal

McKennie collected a pass from C.J. Sapong, beat his defender with a drop of the shoulder, and calmly finished low to the near post. 

After making the breakthrough with Schalke's senior team this season, it appears McKennie is poised to make a similar impact with the U.S. as they begin the long road back after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
