The FIFA Date has come to a cost for the United States, Borussia Dortmund, and Christian Pulisic, as the 20-year-old got injured in the match against Chile, where he scored his team's only goal.

Now, at the end of this FIFA Date, the player that now belongs to Chelsea presents a tear in the right quadriceps and has no time table for his return although he is already recovering in Germany.

The fifth injury in a year

Pulisic has had a nightmare of a year since this is the fifth injury he suffers, the first was in August 2018, when a muscular problem caused him to miss two matches.

The second injury came in October missing another two games after presenting a broken muscle fiber, which is what has been giving him several problems throughout the season.

In December he lost a game again, due to also a muscular problem, and in February he missed another three matches due to a new break in the muscle fiber.

Dortmund doesn't suffer without Pulisic

The German team has a positive balance in the eight games that the American has been injured; with five wins, two draws and only one loss.

Pulisic's activity with his club

Christian Pulisic performance has decreased this season due to the injuries and the arrival of Jadon Sancho; the 20-year-old has played 25 games, scoring five goals and giving five assists in 1,400 minutes played.
