MNT Rewind: Christian Pulisic Opens Bundesliga Campaign with Goal, Assist

Midfielder Christian Pulisic led the way for U.S. MNT players in the final club weekend before head coach Bruce Arena names his roster for September’s crucial World Cup Qualifiers against Costa Rica and at Honduras.

Visiting Wolfsburg on Saturday, the 18-year-old midfielder scored the first goal of the new Bundesliga season for Borussia Dortmund when he cleverly slotted an effort through traffic and inside the left post to give BVB at 1-0 lead in the 22nd minute. The goal made Pulisic the fourth U.S. MNT player to score on the opening day of the Bundesliga season, joining Thomas Dooley (1991), John Brooks (2013) and Bobby Wood (2016).

Dortmund remained in control throughout the match and Pulisic stepped up to ice the game in the 60th minute with a threaded a ball from the right, finding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who tapped home at the back post.

In England, MNT center back Geoff Cameron worked well in a three-man back line with Erik Pieters and Ryan Shawcross to help Stoke City earn a 1-0 home defeat of Arsenal.

Back stateside, defender Graham Zusi was key in providing both assists in Sporting KC’s 2-0 home win against FC Dallas. In the 42nd minute, the right back’s pinpoint corner kick picked out Diego Rubio who volleyed home the opening goal from just outside the six-yard box. With Sporting KC looking to kill off the game late, Zusi lobbed a marvelous ball forward for Gerso Fernandes before the attacker beat his marker and cranked home the clinching goal in the second minute of second-half stoppage time. Zusi now has five assists on the season.

In Saturday’s nightcap, San Jose Earthquakes used a penalty kick from Chris Wondolowski in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time to battle back and earn a 2-2 draw against Philadelphia Union. The goal was Wondolowski’s 10th of the season, giving him a remarkable eight straight M.L.S. campaigns with double-digit goal hauls.

Similar to Wondolowski, Clint Dempsey put home his 11th goal of the season in the dying seconds of Seattle Sounders FC’s 2-1 win vs. Minnesota United FC. It was the U.S. MNT forward’s fourth goal in three matches for Sounders FC and puts him just four back of his best season total when he tallied 15 in 2014.

A few other notes from the past week:

  • Goalkeeper Ethan Horvath made two saves to keep a clean sheet in the first leg of Club Brugge’s UEFA Europa League playoff tie with AEK Athens. Brugge visits the Greek capital for the second leg on Wednesday, Aug. 23.
  • Goalkeeper Bill Hamid made four saves to earn his fourth clean sheet of the season in D.C. United’s 1-0 win at Colorado Rapids.
  • Eighteen-year-old U.S. youth international Weston McKennie came off the bench to play the final 11 minutes in Schalke’s 2-0 win vs. RB Leipzig.
  • On loan from Schalke to Second Division Sandhausen, U.S. youth international Haji Wright came off the bench and scored his first goal for the club in a 4-0 win at Dynamo Dresden.
  • After suffering a hamstring injury earlier this month, right back DeAndre Yedlin returned to the training field with Newcastle United this week.
  • It was announced that center back John Brooks has been ruled out for three months after suffering a torn thigh muscle in Wolfsburg’s 1-0 DFB-Pokal win vs. Eintracht Nordstedt on Aug. 13.
