Christian Pulisic may have missed the last few months of action with the United States Men’s National Team due to various injuries, but with Borussia Dortmund, quite simply, he’s kicking ass when he’s healthy. The 20-year-old phenom appeared in his first match since being subbed out with an injury last month, coming on in the 66th minute for Jacob Bruun Larsen. What did he do? Only provide an assist on Dortmund’s 4th and final goal in a 4-0 victory over Stuttgart.

That’s the Christian Pulisic we love: with the ball in open space and finding the man ahead of him, sending a perfectly weighted pass, and then crashing the net. This time, he found Maximilian Philipp, who banged the shot home for the goal. If there was any rebound, however, Pulisic would have been right there to finish the job.

Borussia Dortmund is still in 1st place in the Bundesliga after today’s win, unbeaten on the season. They’re exciting to watch, and because of Christian Pulisic, they’re a team that you should make plans to watch every week.
