Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Christian Pulisic, Andrew Wooten and more

Christian Pulisic started his club season off with a goal, but it wasn’t enough to lift Borussia Dortmund to a season-opening trophy.

The U.S. Men’s National Team star opened the scoring of Saturday’s German SuperCup with a finish following a Bayern Munich mistake. However, it wouldn’t prove enough for Dortmund, who surrendered a late lead before falling in penalty kicks to the reigning Bundesliga champions. In the Netherlands, Matt Miazga also came up short in SuperCup action, as Vitesse fell to Feyenoord with the American on the bench.

In the German second division, Andrew Wooten and Jerome Kiesewetter stepped up to lead their team to victories. The former had an eventful match, joining as a substitute before scoring the lone goal and picking up an injury in a win over Alfredo Morales and Ingolstadt. Kiesewetter, meanwhile, provided an assist to lead Fortuna Dusseldorf to a win.

Elsewhere, Tim Ream played all 90 minutes in Fulham’s season-opening draw, Terrence Boyd earned a substitute appearance and Paul Arriola started in a lopsided Club Tijuana loss.

  1. Why leave a good thing? BVB is as big if not bigger of a club than Liverpool, no reason to leave now. Doubt BVB would sell either, not with losing Dembele.

    • I don’t really think Barca is going to get both Dembele and Coutinho, a Pulisic move would be based on Coutinho moving to Barca and Liverpool throwing cash at BvB. Dortmund seem the better club at the moment, but Klopp would be considered a better manager than Bosz.

  2. He needs to stay at Dortmund, especially with Dembele gone and his role increased even more. A Liverpool move would hurt his development at this point. His goal for the season should be to build off of last year, score some more goals and gain consistency. Asking an 18 year old to move clubs to a different league and accomplish that goal is a lot. Plus, when do big signings to Liverpool ever really work out? Just as many have flopped there going back years now.

  3. Speculation ramping up on Dembele and/or Couthino to Barca. Either move would seem good for Christian. Leads to the question, is CP better off at Dortmund or Liverpool?
