The 17-year-old is putting in great performance after great performance.
Christian Pulisic got the start in his first ever Champions League match just a few days ago. Even though he picked up an assist in that match and was one of Borussia Dortmund's better players, apparently that wasn't enough for him, so he stepped it up on Saturday.
Dortmund handed him another start, this time against Darmstadt, and he went out and scored his third career Bundesliga goal.
That's about as easy of a goal as Pulisic is going to get. He did well to time his run so as not to attract attention earlier, but the real work was done on the other side of the pitch.
Pulisic deserved this one considering that on Dortmund's second goal, he was part of the hard work with a darting run that unlocked the defense before Adrian Ramos scored. He then added two assists in the match as Dortmund rolled, 6-0.
Not bad for a kid who doesn't turn 18 years old until Sunday.
