Pulisic nets third goal of season

Christian Pulisic was lively on Saturday afternoon as he put in a man of the match performance in Borussia Dortmund’s trip to Werder Bremen.

The U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder used a superb solo run and finish to put Dortmund ahead at the Weserstadion. Pulisic picked up the ball in midfield and raced his way down the gut of the Bremen backline.

He slotted a shot into the bottom-right corner to put Dortmund in front 1-0 after six minutes.

It was Pulisic’s third league goal of the season.

Dortmund added to the advantage later in the half as Paco Alcacer extended the lead to 2-0.

However, Bremen scored a pair of second-half goals to earn a point in a 2-2 draw.

Dortmund remains four points behind league leaders Bayern Munich with two matches remaining.

  1. Sargent made the bench but didnt play. Still proud and impressed with the kid for being at WB for not that long, he is under 21, and making the first team bench.

      • And right now he’s behind somewhat of a Bundesliga legend in 40-year old Claudio Pizarro as their super sub…can’t imagine Pizarro will play much longer…

  2. Kid should of had 2. Very dangerous from his first goal in minute 5 to the 85th where he almost had the game winner. Complicated season for him. I think there was a long stretch where Favre mismanaged and didnt take advantage of the potential of CP and Sancho attacking from both wings. He was either too conservative or pressure from the top to limit CP mins. Who knows. Injuries had a little factor. It costed dortmund at least the 2-4 pts they would need to compete for the title right now. Too bad. No way Bayern drops points in both remaining games.
