Two strikers on the outside of the U.S. Men’s National Team picture remain in fine form.
Both Andrew Wooten and Bjorn Johnsen found the back of the net yet again, as the two strikers continued their recent hot-streak. Wooten’s finish, which came in a 3-1 win over Nurnberg, was the Sandhausen’s eighth in 10 games.
Johnsen’s streak isn’t as prolonged, but the Hearts striker is certainly finding his stride. The Norwegian-American forward has now scored five in eight games, with the most recent finish helping guide Hearts in a 2-2 draw with Ross County.
Saturday certainly wasn’t all positive for Americans Abroad, with a Danny Williams red card headlining what was a disappointing day for several players. William Yarbrough was also one left disappointed, as the goalkeeper played 90 minutes in a loss to Jose Torres in Tigres that saw Club Leon knocked out in Liga MX’s semifinals.
Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic and Fabian Johnson each earned late appearances in a resounding Borussia Dortmund win while John Brooks helped Hertha Berlin earn a narrow 2-1 win over Wolfsburg.
