It was a busy week for the Yanks over in Germany. Making his first Bundesliga appearance in over a month, Christian Pulisic needed just 11+ minutes to record a goal and an assist to give Dortmund the win. Andrew Wooten also got on the score sheet for the 9th time this season. And we even had a Bundesliga debut from 20-year-old Timothy Tillman.
In case you had forgotten, the guy’s legit. He was FotMob’s Man of the Match after coming off the bench in the 79th minute to assist the go ahead goal and then put the icing on the cake with a goal of his own in stoppage time. Youth Update | HIGHLIGHTS
