We were only playing the sixth minute of the FA Cup final when Mount found Olivier Giroud in the box. The 2018 world champion then performed a brilliant heel for Pulisic and the latter, after avoiding Holding, released a powerful strike that deceived Martinez.

With this goal, Christian Pulisic dusted off the statistics. Indeed, being 21 years and 318 days old, the American international becomes the youngest player to score in the final since a certain Cristiano Ronaldo.

But the Portuguese had done better: he was 19 years and 106 days old when he had shaken the nets of Milwall in 2004 with Manchester United!

Finally, the absolute record belongs to Norman Whiteside, scorer at the age of 18 in the 1983 FA Cup replay final between Manchester United and Brighton.
