Pulisic scores spectacular goal from flank to end slump
American midfielder Christian Pulisic ended a four-month goal slump, scoring in spectacular fashion from the right flank to put Borussia Dortmund ahead in its 3-0 victory over Stuttgart in the German Bundesliga on Sunday.
The 19-year-old from Hershey, Pennsylvania, ran onto a pass from Lukasz Piszczek, took a touch in outracing a defender and sent what appeared to be intended as a cross from about 25 yards. The ball sailed over the outstretched left arm of goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler and into the upper far corner in the 38th minute.
It was the fourth league goal of the season for Pulisic, who had not scored since Dec. 16 against Hoffenheim. Pulisic also scored in Dortmund’s Aug. 19 league opener at Wolfsburg and on Sept. 20 at Hamburg.
