Chelsea fans go nuts over what Christian Pulisic did in the German Cup (Video)

Christian Pulisic, who signed for Chelsea one month ago, was handed a chance to start against Werder Bremen in the German Cup.

Borussia Dortmund were knocked out of the German Cup by Werder Bremen following a penalty shootout after a thrilling 3-3 draw at home on Tuesday,

Heading to extra time with the scores level at 1-1 after 90 minutes, the 20-year-old then put his side into the lead with a tremendous goal. However, his brilliant strike was cancelled out minutes later by former Chelsea striker Claudio Pizarro.

Further goals from Achraf Hakimi and Martin Harnik sent the game to penalties, with the Bundesliga leaders losing 4-2 after Alcacer and Max Philipp had missed from the spot.

Speaking to ESPN after the game, Pulisic said: “We shouldn’t have let this game gone to penalty kicks because once you get there anything can happen.

“[Paco Alcacer and Maximilian Philipp] missed [their penalties] but it’s not their fault. We should have won in normal time.

“We didn’t come out good in the first half. We had a bad start, went down a goal and were chasing the game. We were stagnant today and didn’t really have a good game.”

Pulisic’s brilliance didn’t stay unnoticed as Chelsea fans immediately reacted on his display.

Here’s what supporters had to say about Pulisic after his tremendous goal.
