An injury stopped Christian Pulisic from making his 100th senior appearance for Borussia Dortmund, who failed to trouble Hannover 96 without their teenage American.

Pulisic, who turns 20 on Sept. 18, sees his status doubt for the USMNT’s upcoming friendlies against Brazil and Mexico.

His club did not fare well without him, with Marco Reus hitting the bar and missing a sliding attempt. Hannover had more of the ball, and BVB attempted eight shots to the hosts’ seven.

American striker Bobby Wood subbed into the match at halftime for Hannover 96 and was credited with a team-high two shots on goal.

Fox broadcaster Kate Abdo noted that the clean sheet was Hannover’s first since Dec. 2017.
