While a referee strike saw the postponement of Liga MX play, a pair of Americans Abroad made their mark by scoring goals in European action.
Bobby Wood scored the game-winning goal late in Sunday’s clash with Fabian Johnson and Borussia Monchengladbach, leading Hamburg to a 2-1 win that pushes them closer to safety. The U.S. Men’s National Team forward’s goal came in the 80th minute, sealing victory for Hamburg in a clash of American stars.
On Friday, Rubio Rubin scored a goal of his own, his first since moving to Silkeborg. The goal, however, came in a lopsided losing effort as the club lost, 5-1, to FC Nordsjaelland.
In English FA Cup action, Brad Guzan returned for Middlesbrough in goal, but could do little to overcome the onslaught from Manchester City in a 2-0 defeat.
Elsewhere, Emerson Hyndman got his first taste of the Old Firm in a 1-1 draw with Celtic, Steve Clark made his debut for FC Horsens and John Brooks led Hertha Berlin to victory over Christian Pulisic and Borussia Dortmund.
