Duane Holmes scored a decisive goal in Derby County’s 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough. See the goal and find out how the other USMNT players fared.

United States Men’s National Team player Duane Holmes scored the match-tying and decisive goal in Derby County’s 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough in the EFL Championship this weekend. It was the American midfielder’s first goal of the season.

The stunning strike helped Derby County extend their unbeaten run of form to five matches in all competitions.

Holmes was not the only USMNT player to find the back of the net over the course of the week. Gio Reyna scored his first senior team goal for Borussia Dortmund in a friendly against Feyenoord. Reyna has been considered as one of Dortmund’s top prospects at the club. The 17-year-old will look to make his first Bundesliga appearance in the months to come.

Josh Sargent returned from injury in stellar form as he tallied two goals for Werder Bremen in a friendly against Hannover.

Former Real Salt Lake player Sebastian Saucedo scored on his debut for Pumas in Liga MX. The 22-year-old tallied the first goal of the match as Pumas won 2-1 over Pachuca.

Pulisic out with injury

In negative news, Christian Pulisic has been ruled out for a few weeks by Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard. The USMNT midfielder is suffering from an adductor injury.

Chelsea’s next month ahead will be a tough one as they enter a crucial part of the season that features their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Bayern Munich. Hopefully, Pulisic can return in good form to help aid in the club’s push for the last few months of the season.
