If the Bundesliga season ended right now, Christian Pulisic would be tied for top scorer in the league.

The young American has gotten Dortmund off to a flying start in their opening match of the season. This beautiful shot put BVB up 1-0 just over 20 minutes into the game at Wolfsburg.

Pulisic benefits once again from putting himself in the right place on a Dortmund counter-attack. When the ball eventually finds him, he still displays patience and a calm head. Then he just nonchalantly fires the ball inside the near post.

The 18-year-old American could not have asked for a better start to his season. He’ll be playing a big role in Peter Bosz’s Dortmund team this year. And if this showing is anything to go by, they’ll be quite a few more of these Pulisic goals to come.

Captain America has entered the building.
