Americans Abroad: Tuesday Rewind


Christian Pulisic earned another start for Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday afternoon, but he wasn’t the only highly-regarded American prospect to see action for one of the world’s top clubs.

Gedion Zelalem earned a late cameo for his first official Arsenal appearance since Dec. 2014 in Tuesday’s 4-0 League Cup win over Eric Lichaj and Nottingham Forest. The 19-year-old entered the match with Arsenal leading, 3-0, replacing fellow youngster Jeff Reine-Adelaide.

Emerson Hyndman also earned an appearance off the bench as Bournemouth went to extra time in a 3-2 loss to Preston North End. DeAndre Yedlin was a bit more successful, playing all 90 minutes in a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

In Germany, Pulisic stole headlines yet again with a spirited 45 minute shift against Wolfsburg. Repeatedly one of the more active attackers, Pulisic was taken off at halftime after starting his third match in less than a week.
