It may have taken Jermaine Jones a bit longer than he would have liked to open his scoring account this season, but he did so in style on Saturday as Schalke 04 cruised past VfB Stuttgart.
Jones netted his first goal of the 2013-14 campaign in a 3-0 home victory for Schalke with an impressive blast from distance in the 79th minute. The U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder collected a pass from the left and allowed the ball to settle before unleashing a low dipping shot that found the bottom corner. The win was Schalke’s second in their last three games.
Jones was not the only German-American to find the back of the net in recent days. Terrence Boyd added his latest for Rapid Vienna in a 2-1 win over FC Thun in the UEFA Europa League this past Thursday. Boyd took advantage of a goalkeeping miscue to knock home the match’s opener, which gave him 11 goals on the season across all competitions.

What do you think of Jones’ goal? Impressed? How many more do you see Boyd scoring before the winter break arrives?
