Christian Pulisic Scores Opening Goal For Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich

18-year-old USMNT attacker Christian Pulisic opened the scoring for Dortmund in the German Super Cup.

Christian Pulisic’s World Cup year starts now, and the wall-to-wall coverage of the 18-year-old American’s season with Borussia Dortmund couldn’t have started with a bigger bang. In the starting lineup for DFB-Pokal winners Borussia Dortmund against Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the curtain-raising DFL-Supercup, the host side raced out to an early lead behind Pulisic.

A poor back pass invited pressure on Bayern defender Javier Martinez in the 12th minute. With Pulisic closing him down, a heavy first touch allowed the American attacker to nip the ball and finished beyond Sven Ulreich in net.

Bayern leveled only six minutes later after a devastating attack was finished by Robert Lewandowski.
