A full slate of action in Europe allowed multiple USMNT players to get into the mix for their respective clubs. Here’s how they fared.
As the European seasons now begin to hit their stride as summer turns to fall and the games between to stack up, the USMNT players and prospects are making their names known.
With an improving and increasing raft of young players beginning to flourish on foreign soil, the USMNT could well reap the rewards of such far-reaching success in the coming years. For this week’s round-up, we start with someone who just can’t stop scoring.
Josh Sargent added another over the weekend for Werder Bremen’s U-23 side. Although his club was on the losing end, it was the sixth goal for the striker and he continues to impress the senior team coaching staff.
Sargent wasn’t the only young American player to make some noise this week. Luca de la Torre made the most of his senior team start for Fulham. In the Carabao Cup (a.k.a The League Cup), he was involved in every single goal scored by Fulham in their 3-1 victory over Millwall. It was a big performance from a player who has not been featured much with the first team as of late.
Bobby Wood registered an assist for Hannover in their 4-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt. It was a nice set up by Wood who was in much need of the assist. This was his first involvement in a goal for Hannover in the Bundesliga this season.
Christian Pulisic also picked up an assist for Borussia Dortmund in their midweek rout of Nurnberg. He would go on to play 68 minutes in Dortmund’s weekend win over Bayer Leverkusen to move them into first place in the table.
There were a pair of Americans in the Bundesliga II who found the back of the net: Joe Gyau scored over the weekend for Duisburg and Andrew Wooten scored for Sandhausen mid-week.
Joe Corona converted also his spot-kick in Club America’s 9-8 shock shootout loss to FC Juarez.
