Pulisic shines as Dortmund starts there campaign with 3 0 victory over Worsburg

Wolfsburg 0 Borussia Dortmund 3: Pulisic shines as Bosz makes ideal start

Christian Pulisic shone for Borussia Dortmund as Peter Bosz got his first Bundesliga campaign off to a winning start with a convincing 3-0 victory at Wolfsburg.

With Ousmane Dembele suspended by the club following his refusal to train amid transfer speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona, it was fellow youngster Pulisic who stepped up to the mark for Dortmund.

Having already caused havoc down the right flank, the 18-year-old - who netted in the DFL-Supercup against Bayern Munich - thumped Dortmund into the lead 22 minutes in.

Marc Bartra was quick to follow suit with an equally stunning effort - his audacious cross-cum-shot putting Bosz's side well in control.  
Andries Jonker's men did look to mount a comeback, Mario Gomez squandering a gilt-edged chance, but Pulisic's influence soon paid dividends again as he teed up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the hour.

Although Gomez saw a goal disallowed, Wolfsburg never really threatened, as Dortmund eased to an impressive victory in Bosz's Bundesliga debut.
