WATCH: 17-year-old USMNT Christian Pulisic scores first Bundesliga goal for Dortmund

It seemed like a long time coming but the 17-year-old from Hershey, Pennsylvania has done it. USMNT player Christian Pulisic scores his first Bundesliga goal for 2nd place Borussia Dortmund.

It’s tough to not get overhyped about Pulisic since people have been searching for the great young American goalscorer for years but it’s tough to do it considering the kid is 17, already has a solid standing with a team who can compete and will compete in the UEFA Champions League next year and can score goals for the second best German team. I don’t know if Pulisic will finally break that curse of pressure people have put on other young American soccer players but he’s clearly got the best opportunity to do that.
