Trailing 1-0 coming out of the half, Dortmund got level thanks to a 63rd minute penalty from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. But it appeared Stöger’s men would be unable to find a winner until Pulisic burst down the right.
Shinji Kagawa’s incisive pass played in the young American as Pulisic deftly flicked his first touch by the unrushing goalkeeper before finishing his juggling move into a gaping net.
Behind Pulisic’s goal, Dortmund temporarily climb to third in the Bundesliga table level on points with Mochengladbach and RB Leipzig.
