Yanks Abroad: Pulisic doubtful for Friday's Bundesliga game

Christian Pulisic, who missed the USA's friendlies against Brazil and Mexico, remains sidelined at Borussia Dortmund, which faces Eintracht Frankfurt in its third Bundesliga game of the season on Friday.

Pulisic is reportedly suffering from "muscular problems." BVB coach Lucien Favre said Pulisic's condition is "slowly getting much better" but Friday's Frankfurt game is a long shot.

The 19-year-old American started in the season-opening 4-1 win over Leipzig Aug. 26 but did not travel to Hannover for a scoreless tie Aug. 31.

Friday's game is BVB's first of seven games within 23 days that include a Sept. 18 UEFA Champions League clash with Club Brugge.
