Americans Abroad Sunday Rewind: Wood, Brooks, Rubin and more

wood

Hamburg has struggled to score goals this season as the club has drifted down into the relegation zone, but Bobby Wood and co. were able to muster just enough to aid the team’s fight with a win over a fellow American star.

Wood and Hamburg slipped past John Brooks and Hertha Berlin on Sunday via a 1-0 scoreline. The win sees Hamburg move close to safety as the club currently sits 16th in the table, level on points with Wolfsburg for 15th.

Rubio Rubin earned his first minutes at Silkeborg IF, coming off the bench in a  2-0 win over Randers. The substitute appearance was Rubin’s first since joining the club from FC Utrecht during the January transfer window.

Elsewhere, Timmy Chandler and Eintracht Frankfurt couldn’t quite earn a point against Freiburg while youngsters Desevio Payne and Caleb Stanko earned late substitute appearances.

    Can anyone explain why Caleb Stanko is playing for a Swiss Super League team? Do they pay more than MLS?

      He’s on loan from his parent club which is in close proximity to the Swiss Club where he’s currently playing. If next season he isn’t playing for his parent club or loaned to a team/league of a higher caliber than it’ll be time to discuss his moving to MLS.
