USMNT’s Christian Pulisic and Gio Reyna provide key assists for Chelsea and Dortmund

Over in Europe, U.S. Men’s National Team attackers made impacts in their respective matches on Saturday.

In his first start since suffering a hamstring injury in the FA Cup Final on Aug. 1, Christian Pulisic acquitted himself well in Chelsea’s 3-3 draw with Southampton on Saturday. The winger helped set up the Blues’ third goal, which gave the squad a 3-2 lead in the 59th minute at Stamford Bridge.

After Southampton rallied from a 2-0 deficit, Pulisic avoided a tackle and passed to Timo Werner. He, in turn, set up Kai Havertz, who slotted home the go-ahead tally. Pulisic left the match in the 87th minute, only to see Chelsea surrender a late equalizer to Jannik Vestergaard in second-half stoppage time.

With a flick of his head to a teammate, Gio Reyna played an integral part of Borussia Dortmund’s 1-0 win at Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga on Saturday. With his back to goal, the 17-year-old nodded on a ball from midfield to Erling Haaland. The Norwegian striker raced toward the penalty area before squaring a pass to Marco Reus, who had a step on his man before slotting the ball into an empty net in the 76th minute.
