U.S. Abroad Tracker (25 and younger): Pulisic misses Dortmund game

Christian Pulisic missed Borussia Dortmund's 0-0 tie with Wolfsburg, its first Bundesliga game of 2018, with what was described as a muscle injury.

Star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also missed the game after being suspended for missing a team meeting, the second time he was out for disciplinary reasons this season.

Without Pulisic and Aubameyang, BVB gave 17-year-old Englishman Jadon Sancho and 18-year-old Swede Alexander Isak their first starts.

Pulisic was one of nine players who had taken ill from food poisoning during Dortmund's winter camp in Spain. Five of them played or dressed in the 0-0 tie with Wolfsburg, which dropped Dortmund to fourth place.

Saturday. DeAndre Yedlin preserved Newcastle United's 1-1 tie with visiting Swansea City when he cleared Wilfried Bony's shot off the line in stoppage time. Spaniard Joselu came off the bench to score the equalizer for Newcastle, which is tied for 15th place, three points out of the relegation zone.

Friday. Jordan Siebatcheu scored his 10th goal of the season for Ligue 2 runaway leader Reims in its 2-0 win over Orleans. Siebatcheu, who is eligible to play for the USA, France and Cameroon, is tied for second in Ligue 2 in scoring.
