First scored the leading goal, later replaced injured: For Christian Pulisic, the final in the English FA Cups ended not only ugly because of the 1: 2 (1: 0) defeat against Arsenal.
The former star player of Borussia Dortmunder had initially given his team a lead against Arsenal in the 5th minute when a cross from Olivier Giroud cleverly used against the still sluggish Gunners defense.
Immediately after the start of the second half, the 21-year-old almost had topped up, but shot 16 meters from the goal.
Bitter: Pulisic apparently contracted a muscle injury during this action. Supported by both sides, the American had to leave the field a little later. For him, Pedro came onto the grass at Wembley Stadium.
After Pulisisc also Pedro injured out
The Spaniard did not experience the end of the game on the court. After a long break in treatment, he had to be carried on a stretcher from the field.
It is still unclear how seriously Pulisic and Pedro are injured.
Next Saturday, Chelsea will play in the second leg of the Champions League second leg at Bayern. The German record champions won the first leg 3-0 at the end of February.
