With World Cup qualifiers looming, two Premier League stars recently coming off injury put in strong performances to help their teams earn big results.
Geoff Cameron and DeAndre Yedlin turned in solid efforts over the weekend to help their sides go into the international break on a high. Cameron and Stoke City picked up a 2-1 win over Southampton in their weekend matchup while Yedlin’s Newcastle held Liverpool in a 1-1 draw against one of the league’s most dangerous attacks.
In Germany, Weston McKennie went a full 90 minutes for Schalke while Christian Pulisic helped Borussia Dortmund earn a win. Fabian Johnson, recently left off the USMNT squad, also went 78 minutes in a Borussia Monchengbladbach win.
Elsewhere, Lynden Gooch provided an assist, Mix Diskerud added a goal and Jonathan Gonzalez played another full match for Monterrey.
