The Christian Pulisic hype train rolls on as the young American prodigy scored his second career Bundesliga goal against Stuttgart. The goal came in the 45th minute just before halftime, and gave Dortmund a 2-0 lead over Stuttgart on the day.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan set up Pulisic by taking a shot from outside the box that couldn't be held by the keeper. The ball fell kindly for Pulisic who made no mistakes in smashing the rebound into the net.
With the goal, the 17-year-old became the youngest player to ever score two goals in the Bundesliga.

USMNT manager Jurgen Klinsmann was predictably excited at the news of a goal for Pulisic. His performance this season should see him fit more into the picture with the senior US National team.
There's always the risk with a young American soccer star that they will be over-hyped, but the youngster from Hershey, Pennsylvania seems to be worth the hype. This kid is the real deal and will hopefully be scoring goals in the Dortmund's colors for years to come.
