Christian Pulisic does it again!

Borussia Dortmund started the 2017-2018 season in the right direction with a huge 3-0 win against Wolfsburg. Christian Pulisic scored the first goal at the 22nd minute with a great right-footed shot off the assist from Mario Gotze. Marc Batra and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang contributed with a goal as well.

Pulisic played until the 86th minute when he was substituted for Shinji Kagawa. The 18-year-old departed the contest with a goal and an assist to help Dortmund get the season-opening victory as the U.S. international is off to a great start in the Bundesliga.

So far the Young American teenager has been a starter for Dortmund’s starting eleven. He has proven himself each game with goals and assists.

When Landon Donovan had an outstanding breakout in the 2002 World Cup someone predicted that in 20 years another player like him will rise up. The prediction was true, but it came five years before what the guy had predicted.

With transfer rumors hovering over Ousmane Dembele future, Pulisic has been the beneficiary of playing time snapping up the minutes under first-year head coach Peter Bosz who is not complaining:

“Christian Pulisic is still very young, but did really well today – and not just because of his goal. He was all over the pitch, created lots of dangerous situations and played really well.”

Next week Dortmund will play at home against Hertha Berlin in week 2 of the Bundesliga.
