Friday’s Americans Abroad performances were certainly about quality over quantity, as one American provided a goal while another added an assist.
Headlining the day’s action was Andrew Wooten, who provided the opening goal in SV Sandhausen’s 2-0 win over Dynamo Dresden. The forward’s finish was a true poachers goal, as Wooten pounced on a loose ball on the back post to fire his second goal in as many matches.
In Scotland, Perry Kitchen made his mark as well, assisting on Hearts’ first finish in a 3-1 win over Motherwell. The American midfielder, who was recently named club captain, was credited with an assist as Sam Nicholson’s shot caromed off a defender and into the back of the net for Hearts’ first goal of the match.
Elsewhere, Michael Orozco played all 90 minutes in a Club Tijuana win, while Paul Arriola and John Requejo were named to the Xolos bench.
