Saturday proved a very busy day for Americans Abroad, as a goal, several assists and even an own goal headlined a loaded schedule.
Leading the way for the American contingent in Europe was Christian Pulisic, who provided a goal and two assists in Borussia Dortmund’s 6-0 thumping of SV Darmstadt. Among his side’s most dangerous players throughout the match, Pulisic’s standout performance comes just days after the winger notched an assist in his champions league debut.
A clash between Werder Bremen and Borussia Monchengladbach was likely the most eventful of the day, though. Fabian Johnson and Aron Johannsson each provided an assist for their respective clubs, but the U.S. Men’s National Team striker’s red card was just one of several setbacks in a 4-1 Werder Bremen loss.
Johannson wasn’t the only USMNT contributor to have a bad day. Omar Gonzalez contributed a late own goal in Pachuca’s 2-2 draw with Tijuana, robbing his side of three points.
