The 19-year-old was being interviewed when he saw the young fan in search of a selfie with him being dragged away by security.

Pulisic however quickly stepped in to stop the security and posed for a photo with the boy before he was escorted away.

Brace for Pulisic

Before his heartwarming gesture, the America international netted twice for Dortmund against Liverpool.

His first goal came in the 66th minute which was an equaliser for Dortmund before his second in the 89th minute to make it 2-1.

Defender Virgil van Dijk had put Liverpool ahead in the first half and it was Jacob Bruun Larsen who rounded up scoring for Dortmund in added time.

Although he should have gotten the Man of the Man award, the teenager was ineligible to be named top performer in the ICC game because he was too young to receive the award sponsored by Heineken.

At the age of 19, Pulisic was not eligible, due to the legal drinking age in the United States which is 21. The award went to Van Dijk instead.
