But as Dortmund pushed for a third, the German had yet another moment to forget as he parried Pulisic's shot straight into the path of Jacob Bruun Larsen to put the game past Liverpool late on.

Pulisic's introduction at half-time sparked a second-half comeback from Dortmund to beat Liverpool 3-1 in the International Champions Cup fixture as the 19-year-old, playing in his home country, netted a penalty, coolly finished off a counter-attack for an 89th-minute victor and then set up Jacob Bruun Larsen's late strike.

With Mohamed Salah, Pedro Chirivella, Georginio Wijnaldum, Sadio Mane and Marko Grujic sitting out it was an inexperienced Liverpool side that took to the field at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Andrew Robertson's cross from a short corner was met with a towering header from Van Dijk that left Marwin Hitz in the Dortmund goal with no chance. "It's another muscle - it looks like, hopefully, only a little tear", he told reporters after the match.

Set-pieces were probably the most positive thing today.

The Merseyside giants might have to act fast, though, if they want to bring the 19-year-old to Anfield.

"We will see, but we can not say any more about it now".

Who are Liverpool most likely to sign this summer?

Those suspicions were only heightened when the 28-year-old was loaned out to West Brom in January-a move that failed to be a success for Sturridge, who made just six appearances, with the Baggies eventually relegated to Championship. "He's a fantastic skilled boy, and it's not a surprise to see". He alone can not do it all.

For both teams it was obviously very hard circumstances, the humidity and all that stuff. "I'm fine with him, 100 percent".

"A few players after five minutes thought "wow" where are we here? He is a great keeper and he can still show that with us in the future". That means first of all we let him go and adapt to our system.
