Emerson Hyndman has become an integral part of the Rangers lineup since making his temporary move to Scotland, and on Wednesday, the young American midfielder stepped up yet again when the team needed him most.
Hyndman scored a stoppage time winner on Wednesday, leading Rangers to a 3-2 win over St. Johnstone. The goal is Hyndman’s third in six apearances since joining the club on loan from Premier League side Bournemouth.
The midfielder wasn’t the only American to get on the scoresheet, as Bobby Wood fired a late goal of his own in DFB-Pokal action. The finish, however, wasn’t enough to lead Hamburg to a win over Fabian Johnson and Borussia Monchengladbach, who sealed their spot in the competition’s semifinal with a 3-2 victory.
Elsewhere, Jorge Villafana went a full 90 minutes for Santos Laguna while Matt Miazga helped Vitesse earn a Dutch Cup win. David Wagner wasn’t as lucky, though, as Huddersfield Town fell, 5-1, to Manchester City after scoring an early goal.
