Christian Pulisic has scored his first ever professional goal for Borussia Dortmund. The 17-year-old got his second consecutive start as Thomas Tuchel decided to rest most of his starters after their disappointing Europa League collapse against Liverpool.

Just before halftime, Pulisic lined up to take a corner but instead played it short. He then made a brilliant incisive run, collected a pass, cut inside on his preferred right foot and finished sublimely to the near post. A lovely goal to give Dortmund a 1-0 lead and a moment the youngster will never forget.
It's his 10th appearance on the season as he's been eased into the side by the manager. After last week's brilliant performance in the derby, Tuchel stated that Pulisic was now a full fledged member of the first-team. This goal shows why.
