US worldwide Christian Pulisic came off the bench to inspire Borussia Dortmund to a 3-1 victory over Liverpool in their global Champions Cup match at the Bank of America Stadium in North Carolina this evening.
"And you want to play today's kind of games and get ready for what's coming this season". Obviously we can not say more about this now, but that's of course the most negative thing about the day.
The forced change came in the Cameroon international's third game of pre-season having only recently returned from the hamstring injury which ruled him out from the end of last term and the Champions League final.
Clear cut chances were few and far between in the opening 15 minutes, despite both sides playing at a good tempo early on.
Pulisic converted a 66th-minute penalty before putting Dortmund ahead with a minute of regulation time remaining, while Jacob Bruun Larsen sealed the win in the 93rd minute.
Liverpool will aim to bounce back when they play Manchester City in New Jersey on Wednesday night, while Dortmund face Benfica in Pittsburgh, in Pulisic's home state of Pennsylvania. Fabinho, position-wise, should be the guy who organises things for us, but with Adam Lallana and Curtis Jones, plus two wingers, it was not too easy.

"The second half we played a lot better against a different Dortmund side, our pressing was much better, Dortmund tried to play football and that helped us a little bit".
Klopp remarked: "He is in very good shape, that's true".
Last season in the Bundesliga, Dortmund scored 64 goals, 13 of which were scored by Aubameyang who finished as the club's top scorer despite leaving in January.
"We had two big chances off the set-pieces again with Dom Solanke and Joe Gomez, and we had a chance with Ojo".
