Christian Pulisic probably didn't mean to do this, but it counts just the same.

U.S. men's national team star Christian Pulisic scored a pretty ridiculous goal Sunday–possibly unintentionally.

In the first half of Borussia Dortmund's game against Stuttgart, Pulisic attempted to dig out a cross into the box, racing down the right channel with his head down before sending in a ball toward the far post. It wound up hitting the top left corner of the goal instead, and it gave Dortmund a 1–0 lead.

This marked Pulisic's fourth goal of the season.

Dortmund was looking to rebound after a 6–0 loss to Bayern Munich in Der Klassiker, and Pulisic's goal helped send the club on its way to a 3-0 win. Coupled with Schalke's loss at Hamburg, Dortmund's win brought the club within a point of second place in the Bundesliga.
