Christian Pulisic Opens His Bundesliga Account After Combining With Marco Reus

After scoring a fluky goal against Club Bruges in the Champions League Tuesday (although a hugely important one that secured all three points for Borussia Dortmund), Christian Pulisic made it two goals in two games after salvaging a point for BVB against Hoffenheim Saturday.
Perhaps most importantly from an individual perspective, the 20-year-old went the full 90 minutes for the first time this season after being sidelined at the start of the campaign with a muscular injury.
But Pulisic put in a strong performance on the right wing for Dortmund today, completing a four dribbles (more than anyone else on the pitch), providing two key passes and scoring with his only shot of the match — this one-touch finish following a low cross from Marco Reus.
Watching Reus and Pulisic combine never, ever gets old.

He should've gotten an assist in the match as well.
