Christian Pulisic is good at soccer. That’s the real headline here. The 18-year-old American proved that again on Wednesday, scoring his first career Champions League goal for Borussia Dortmund to give his team a 2-0 advantage over Benfica.
Pulisic’s goal came on a sublime chip over Benfica goalie Ederson in the 59th minute. That tally gave Dortmund a 2-1 advantage on aggregate, and the team has since gone on to extend that advantage to 4-1. Pulisic’s goal gained the momentum for “Die Borussen,” as it turned a tight, 1-0 contest into a 4-0 rout. He also set up the third goal just two minutes later.
Here’s a look at the first of what will likely be many Champions League goals in Pulisic’s career:
