American midfielder Christian Pulisic turns 18 years old on Sunday, and came up with an early gift during Borussia Dortmund’s Saturday match.

Pulisic, continuing his strong recent form, netted his third career Bundesliga goal during Dortmund’s match against Darmstadt, giving his team a 3–0 lead with a curling finish and a nice look at the net.

Watch below.

The goal was his first of the season, in his first Bundesliga appearance of the campaign.

Pulisic made his Champions League debut earlier this week, adding a memorable assist in Dortmund’s win over Legia Warsaw.
