Christian Pulisic scores 89th minute winner as Dortmund beats Hoffenheim

It looked like Borussia Dortmund was going to settle for a 1-1 draw at home against TSG Hoffenheim. A Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty cancelled out Mark Uth’s earlier opener, but then a 19-year-old American stepped in.

That’s Christian Pulisic beating Hoffenheim keeper Oliver Baumann to a 50-50 ball, taking a brilliant touch around him, and then tapping the ball into the open net while leaping in the air. The USMNT standout has scored many goals for both his club and country, but few have been as spectacular or as timely as this one.

It was his second Bundesliga goal of the season and his first since scoring against Hamburg on Sepetmber 20.


      • I heard a compelling argument that Pulisic would command a HUGE transfer fee to account for the huge American market’s purchasing power being concentrated on the ONE American super-star in Europe. If someone tries to buy him, Dortmund will say “Pulisic could move five-million $100 jerseys in North-America for your team, that’s $500,000,000 in new sales over the years, plus he’s a great player, so we think you should pay us $200,000,000+ for him.”
