The future (and current) star of the U.S. Men’s National Team will be playing in Los Angeles in a few short weeks.

Los Angeles FC announced that Christian Pulisic will make the trip with Borussia Dortmund for a friendly match at the Banc of California Stadium on May 22. It was unclear when the friendly match was originally announced in January whether Pulisic would be part of the traveling party, but now it appears to be confirmed, according to LAFC’s Instagram page.

Pulisic is set to feature for the USMNT on May 28 in Chester, Penn. against Bolivia before taking the rest of the summer off to rest up ahead of another long European campaign. Had the U.S. qualified for the World Cup, Pulisic likely wouldn’t have played with Dortmund on their post-season trip to the U.S.

Now, fans around Los Angeles will get a chance to see the still 19-years old Pulisic play on the field before he comes back with the USMNT in the future.
