This list grows shorter and shorter as seasons wrap up across Europe. This past week saw the end of the season in Germany. Christian Pulisic says good bye to Borussia Dortmund with an assist, but the luster was taken out of the day as the team finished in 2nd place. But, Tyler Adams will get another another mach this weekend as Leipzig try to win the DFB Pokal. Duane Holmes & Ian Harkes were able to extend their seasons as they prepare for Promotion Playoff Finals. On the other end of the spectrum, Emmanuel Sabbi played hero as he got the win to avoid relegation for at least one more week. The players who made the Gold Cup provisional roster have asterisks next to their name.
Pulisic finished off his career with Dortmund with an assist, although it wasn’t enough to claim the Bundesliga title. BvB got the 2-0 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach but Bayern hoisted the trophy on Saturday. He created five chances, the most in the match. But he also lost possession the most times (4) in the match. Pulisic is of course now off to England for a huge challenge at Chelsea. YOUTH UPDATE | HIGHLIGHTS
