Christian Pulisic is really enjoying his 20s so far. The American phenom continued his recent tear with an incredible assist on the first of 7 goals for Borussia Dortmund against Nurnberg today in midweek Bundesliga action.
In the 9th minute, Pulisic received the ball about 45 yards from goal, made a Nurnberg defender look foolish, sidestepped another, and then began to slice towards goal. About 25 yards from the net, he chipped an exquisite pass over the Nurnberg back line to Jacob Bruun Larsen, who had sprinted his way past the defense. He has an incredible chip himself to clear the keeper and find the back of the net.

This is a world class pass by Pulisic, another world class finish by Larsen. Dortmund would go on to win 7-0 over Nurnberg.
Pulisic, who turned 20 on September 18th, has been on fire lately. He scored the game winner on his birthday in Champions League, scored an equalizer 4 days later, and now the assist today. The kid is clearly taking his game to another level right now, and that’s only going to mean great things for the United States Men’s National Team. Bear witness.
