Wednesday saw many Americans Abroad settle for defeat, but Weston McKennie and Schalke did just enough to earn three points in a Bundesliga shootout.
McKennie started and went all 90 minutes in the midfield for Schalke, who took down Augsburg, 3-2, on Wednesday afternoon. After conceding a two-goal lead on second half scores from Augsburg’s Caiuby and Michael Gregoritsch, Schalke finished the job on an 83rd-minute penalty kick from Daniel Caligiuri.
In England, DeAndre Yedlin started and went all 90 minutes as well, but came out on the losing end of a match against Everton. Newcastle conceded just one goal on the day as Wayne Rooney scored the game-winner after previously scoring the equalizing penalty kick in the Merseyside Derby over the weekend.
Elsewhere, Matt Miazga and Vitesse settled for a thrilling four-goal draw in Eredivisie play.
