Christian Pulisic has scored his first goal of the new Bundesliga season to salvage a 1-1 draw away to Hoffenheim on Saturday. The U.S. international made it two goals in his last two games after scoring the game-winning goal in the Champions League during midweek for Borussia Dortmund against Club Brugge.
Pulisic got on the end of a Marco Reus pass to bang in Dortmund’s only goal of a rather miserable match:

It was a decent performance for the American who was one of the few bright spots for Dortmund on the day. Pulisic has been out injured since the opening match of the season. It’s great to see him come back from the layoff in form and contributing what little offense the team can muster.

Despite the forgettable team performance, Dortmund are sitting in 4th with two wins and two draws to open the season. Pulisic will have a chance to make it three games in a row with a goal on Wednesday when his side host FC Nürnberg (2:30 p.m. ET; FS2).
