Christian Pulisic will have to wait a while longer to make his 50th Bundesliga appearance, after withdrawing from the Borussia Dortmund squad to face Stuttgart on Friday night at the 11th hour due to injury.

The 19-year-old playmaker, who was all set to become the third-youngest player after former Schalke prodigy Julian Draxler and RB Leipzig's Timo Werner to reach 50 Bundesliga appearances, is suffering with a muscle complaint.

Pulisic will hope to recover in time for next Saturday's Revierderby with Schalke – a game which could pit the Hershey-born star up against good friend and fellow USA international Weston McKennie for the first time.
