Christian Pulisic is in spectacular form heading into the Hexagonal.
The U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder provided an assist in Borussia Dormund’s 5-2 win over Hamburg on Saturday. In addition to the official assist, the 18-year-old should have earned another after helping to set up his side’s first goal in what proved to be a lopsided victory.
From the onset, Pulisic was involved, utilizing his movement to create space. Playing as a left winger, Pulisic got loose in the third minute before feeding Emre Mor in front of goal. The shot was saved, but Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang tapped in first-time for his first of four goals on the day.
Pulisic set up the last of those four goals, notching an assist in the 48th minute. After winning the ball atop the box, Pulisic poked a pass towards Aubameyang, who fired a shot to the far post to conclude his scoring outburst.
Hamburg played without Bobby Wood, who served the first of a three-game suspension after earning a red card for an elbow.
