Tyler Adams is at the top of the list for the most significant goals scored abroad by members of the United States men's national soccer team.
The 21-year-old midfielder has scored only seven times since turning pro at 16, but all of Adams’s goals have happened at crucial moments. Like the game-winning and only goal in the U.S national team's 1–0 win over Mexico in 2018.
Adam's biggest goal came on Thursday in Lisbon that led to RB Leipzig's going to the semifinals for the first time.
No U.S. player has ever scored in the Champions League quarterfinal or later, meaning Adams has made his mark and history at the club game’s highest level.
