Liverpool 1-3 Borussia Dortmund: Christian Pulisic turns game on its head as wasteful Reds punished
beer789 A dominant Liverpool showing meant little as Christian Pulisic's double helped Borussia Dortmund to a 3-1 win in North Carolina.With the number of chances created, the Reds should have begun their International Champions Cup with victory, and led for 40 minutes once Virgil van Dijk headed in Andrew Robertson's cross from a corner with 25 minutes gone.
But having barely had a kick, Dortmund were level when half-time substitute Pulisic was taken down by James Milner in the Liverpool box, and the American took the ball from Mario Gotze before dispatching the resulting penalty in front of his home fans (66).Jurgen Klopp's team resumed control against his former side but from a late break, Pulisic put the German side ahead in the last minute before he saw a shot palmed straight to Larsen in added time, who added a third to teach Liverpool a harsh lesson in efficiency.
beer789 Van Dijk's header was the only shot Liverpool registered before the break, as they probed without breaking through against a young Dortmund side, who named Jadon Sancho in attack, as well as fellow Englishman Denzil Boadu in midfield.Dortmund's one first-half chance fell to Maximilian Philipp when Karius, out of his box to cut out a through-ball, sliced his clearance straight to the forward, but his first-time shot lacked power and precision, ending wide with the goalkeeper ready to cover.
The second half, with both teams making wholesale changes, was a thoroughly different affair. Milner curled an effort no more than a foot over the bar when given space to shoot just outside the area, before Dominic Solanke nodded a golden chance from inside the six-yard wide of the far post from another short corner. beer789 The crucial minute of the match began when Sheyi Ojo was played in by Daniel Sturridge, but allowed Marwin Hitz to make a good save with his legs when he should have been left helpless.
