Pulisic ranked fourth most promising U-20 prospect in Europe

Borussia Dortmund's Christian Pulisic was ranked the fourth most promising U-20 prospect in Europe by the CIES Football Observatory.

The rankings are based on the minutes a player has played and weighted according to the competitive level of the league in which he plays and and the results of the club he plays for.

Only three players -- goalkeepers Gianluigi Donnarumma and Alban Lafont and French star Kylian Mbappe -- ranked ahead of Pulisic. They were among 10 players ranked as five-star prospects. The top 50 players were ranked on a scale of three to five stars.

Ryan Sessegnon, Fulham's 17-year-old star, was ranked No. 10. He was one of seven players from second division clubs and the only player born in 2000.

The only players ranked were those from 22 European competitions.
