Christian Pulisic missed out on international duty with the U.S. Men’s National Team due to injury. Saturday marked Pulisic’s return to the Borussia Dortmund squad after a two-match absence and he did so in style.
Pulisic came off the bench and played 24 minutes in Dortmund’s 4-0 road win over Stuttgart. The 20-year-old registered an assist in his return, giving him two on the season.
Already up 3-0 at Mercedes-Benz Arena, Pulisic joined the attack in Dortmund’s fourth goal. The midfielder played in a wide open Maximilian Philipp who rifled home in the 85th minute.
It was a solid return for Pulisic who now prepares to be in Lucien Favre’s squad ahead of Champions League midweek. Dortmund welcomes Atletico Madrid to Signal Iduna Park on Wednesday, seeking their third consecutive European win.
After missing their 3-0 win over Monaco on Matchday 2, Pulisic will aim to be in the starting XI against the La Liga giants.
