For Hertha Berlin, Saturday’s match against Eintracht Frankfurt was a dream return to the Bundesliga.
For German-American defender John Anthony Brooks, it was a dream debut in Germany’s top division just days before he is expected to receive his first senior call-up to the U.S. Men’s National Team.
The defending 2. Bundesliga champions started their season with a commanding 6-1 home victory over Eintracht Frankfurt, who were the surprise story of last year’s Bundesliga campaign. Brooks, who is expected to be a part of the USMNT roster for Wednesday’s friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina, netted Hertha Berlin’s second goal on Saturday.
Here is video of Brooks’ goal:
Hertha Berlin went on and score four more times before the final whistle thanks to braces from Adrian Ramos and Sami Allagui. Brooks played every minute of the rout for the newly promoted club.
What do you think of this news? Excited to see Brooks have a great Bundesliga debut days before he is expected to join the USMNT?
