USMNT abroad: Welcome to the world, Gio Reyna

This week, Gio Reyna announced himself on the world stage with a fabulous goal. Find out how he fared among many others in this week’s USMNT abroad.

It’s been a great start to 2020 for Eintracht Frankfurt’s Timothy Chandler. The U.S. Men’s National Team right-back hopeful has scored four goals since returning from the Bundesliga’s winter break and was a difference-maker in their 5-0 win against Augsburg on Friday. Chandler scored the first two goals of the match to help his team cruise to victory.

The aforementioned Chandler was not the only USMNT player to get a goal. Duane Holmes of Derby County was on the mark against Swansea City.

His 64th-minute strike helped the English club pull off a 3-2 come from behind victory. In midweek FA Cup action, Holmes scored in a 4-2 win over Northampton Town to secure a place in the next round of the competition.
