U.S. national team's 17-year-old rising star Christian Pulisic scored a late equalizer in Borussia Dortmund's preseason friendly against Manchester City on Thursday, continuing his preparations ahead of the Bundesliga campaign. 

Pulisic scored off a short corner, with him receiving the second pass and one-timing a low shot by reserve goalkeeper Angus Gunn in the 96th minute. The match, part of the International Champions Cup, went straight to penalties after the 1-1 draw, and Manchester City prevailed. Pulisic, who came on as a halftime substitute, scored in the penalty shootout as well. 

Dortmund had beaten Manchester United 4-1 in its other ICC match, with Pulisic appearing as a 63rd-minute substitute.

Pulisic is entering his first full season with Dortmund's first team. He made nine appearances (four starts) with Dortmund in league play last season, scoring two goals. He also debuted for the U.S. senior national team in a March World Cup qualifier, and he scored in a pre-Copa America friendly vs. Bolivia.
