Christian Pulisic is pretty darn good at this soccer thing


His latest setback means Schuerrle will miss Dortmund's trip to Wolfsburg on Saturday in their opening league match of the new season.

Borussia Dortmund coach Peter Bosz hailed the "special" Mario Gotze after the midfielder made his competitive return on Saturday.

ESPN is reporting that the United States global isn't interested in leaving the Bundesliga outfit ahead of a big season in the Bundesliga for the teenager.

"We have a clear position and a clear idea. He has played really good but he is a really good player", he said. "We won't wait to the last day of the transfer window with this decision".

He was signed to much fanfare but struggled for form last season, managing just two goals and three assists in 15 Bundesliga games.

Midway through the first half, the US global received the ball just outside the box, took one step to his right before firing a shot across goal and in off the left post.

Mario Gotze found Pulisic running to his right and played him the ball into the box. Pulisic scored with a great finish inside the far post midway through the first half.

Marc Bartra made it 2-0 with a brilliantly curled shot from a hard angle inside the top corner.

Goals from Christian Pulisic, Marc Bartra and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saw Dortmund to their comfortable win in their league opener.
