A pair of U.S. Men’s National Team regulars provided assists heading towards the Hexagonal, while another familiar face continues to shine in defense in Bundesliga play.
Both Christian Pulisic and DeAndre Yedlin provided assists on Saturday as each helped their side claim wins heading into the international break. Pulisic was involved throughout before assisting Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang’s fourth goal in a 5-2 Borussia Dortmund win, while Yedlin set up Yoan Gouffran in Newcastle’s win over Cardiff City.
Timmy Chandler didn’t get his name on the scoresheet, but he did step up throughout Saturday’s action. The fullback has been in spectacular form with Eintracht Frankfurt in recent weeks, and his latest effort saw him help the club earn a 1-0 shutout win over Cologne.
