Haji Wright scores four goals for Schalke in preseason match

It only took 15 minutes to justify Haji Wright’s move to Schalke’s senior team.

The 19-year-old American scored four goals in 15 minutes in Saturday’s, 9-1, rout against second-tier side Erkenschwick. Wright’s hat-trick plus one comes in the U.S. U-19’s first minutes with the first-team, two months after debuting on Domenico Tedesco’s bench against FC Ingolstadt in Bundesliga play.

The former New York Cosmos forward was promoted to Schalke’s first-team in May after a year with their U-19 side. Wright has capped for the U.S. in four different age levels, most recently for Brad Friedel’s U-19.

Schalke is currently prepping for the 2017/18 season with a set of preseason tune-ups scheduled for the remainder of the month, presenting opportunities for Wright to showcase his worth.
