Record boy Pulisic modest after Dortmund's win over Stuttgart

Christian Pulisic hailed the benefits of his training as a youngster after scoring his second Bundesliga goal in Borussia Dortmund's 3-0 win over VfB Stuttgart on Matchday 31, setting a new top-flight record in the process.

After Henrikh Mkhitaryan's long-range effort had been parried by Stuttgart keeper Przemyslaw Tyton in the 45th minute of the first period, Pulisic was on hand to finish calmly past the Pole and send BVB into the half-time break with a 2-0 lead.

"I saw Miki was going to take a shot and I learned ever since I was little that if you want to score goals you have to follow up the shot," Pulisic told Dortmund's official TV channel after the game. "That’s what I did and the goalie hit it right out to me and I just finished it."
