Pulisic powers Dortmund past Liverpool in friendly

Jurgen Klopp Liverpool 22072018

The American switfly evaded defenders to draw a crucial penalty in the 65th minute of Borussia Dortmund's game against Liverpool in the International Champions Cup.

Virgil van Dijk scored the only goal of an uneventful first half to send Liverpool into the break with the lead, but a string of half-time changes resulted in more action and ultimately saw Dortmund come from behind to win.

And in stoppage time, Karius could only parry a soft shot from Christian Pulisic into the path of Jacob Bruun Larsen for Dortmund's third goal.

Matip limped off 22 minutes into Liverpool's 3-1 defeat to Dortmund in Charlotte after he overhit a pass and then immediately signalled towards the Liverpool bench, pointing towards his upper leg.

A clip of Karius making a shocking mistake in the warm-up for the Reds' first pre-season friendly against Chester went viral and his shakiness was on full display again in their next game, when he dropped an atrocious clanger against Tranmere Rovers. They got three, we got one.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will sweat on the fitness of Joel Matip for the next few days.

"We will see, but we can not say anymore it now".

"The beginning of Dortmund was good, then we controlled things without creating chances".

"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". He was replaced by Joe Gomez.

"I think we're definitely looking strong as a team right now, personally I feel good as well, so I think we're looking good".

Fabinho - 7: Fought hard in the midfield as he tries to claim a spot for the opening day against West Ham, showed his versatility by moving back to centre half when Matip went off.

Liverpool's pressure continued to grow, though, and Sheyi Ojo should have added a second shortly after the hour mark when he was slipped clean through on goal, only to see his finish saved by the feet of Hitz and bounce up against the crossbar before the ball was cleared away off the head of Naby Keita from the rebound. It was too much.
