Today and American stepped on the field for the number two club in one of the biggest leagues in the world. 17-year-old Christian Pulisic entered Borussia Dortmund's match against Ingolstadt in the 68th minute:

The youngster didn't look out of place at all in his 22 minutes on the field. He was able to dribble past defenders and get to the endline from his left winger spot on multiple occasions.

The match was deadlocked at 0-0 when Pulisic entered the match. It was 2-0 to Dortmund when the final whistle blew. While he didn't directly contribute to either goal, his contributions weren't completely irrelevant. On Dortmund's second goal, the American made a smart run in front of goal that would've netted him an easy tap-in had Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang decided to pass instead of going for goal.

It'll be a day that Pulisic never forgets and hopefully it's the start of a long and successful pro career for the talented Pennsylvania native.
