He rattled in a second a minute before time, Liverpool left wondering how they'd lost the game as Pulisic struck into the corner to conclude a counter-attack, while there was still time for a third Dortmund goal as Pulisic's shot was spilt by Loris Karius into the path of Jacob Bruun Larsen to tap-in.

Karius was at fault for two of Real Madrid's goals when Liverpool were beaten 3-1 in May's Champions League final, after which it was revealed the 25-year-old German was suffering from concussion. "Ignore those who hate.@LorisKarius".

"To those who take joy in seeing other people fail or suffer, I feel for you".

Karius was quoted by the Liverpool Echo as telling Sky in Germany after the Dortmund match: "Of course that's not flawless for me, but I can not say much more about that".

"I know Christian, I liked him since he was a kid".

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

Klopp had hoped for a positive update on the 26-year-old but Liverpool confirmed on Monday that the tear would see Matip return to Merseyside.

Joel Matip had to come off in the 22nd minute against Borussia Dortmund (Martin Rickett/PA).

Jurgen Klopp doesn't know if Christian Pulisic will ever join him at Liverpool, but he thinks Dortmund is a good place for the American to develop.

Liverpool are confident the muscle tear suffered by Joel Matip against Borussia Dortmund is not a long-term problem but he will play no further part in the International Champions Cup.

"No, it's not the same injury, it's another muscle", Klopp said.

Matip was side-lined during the run-in last season through a thigh injury, Klopp insisting it's not a reoccurrence of that problem but unable to confirm Matip will be fit for the Reds' season opener against West Ham.

He made his return to action in Liverpool's 0-0 friendly against Bury on July 14 and then started in the 2-0 win over Blackburn.

Just 22 minutes into the match in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Cameroonian pulled up and had to be replaced by Joe Gomez.

Christian Pulisic put in an inspired performance with two goals for Dortmund as they came from behind to defeat Liverpool.

Liverpool continue their ICC campaign with matches against Manchester City on Wednesday and Manchester United on Saturday.
