For those of you who missed it, U.S. Under-23 national team midfielder Sal Zizzo made his German Bundesliga debut today for Hannover 96 against Werder Bremen. He entered the match in the 70th minute with the score 2-0 in favor of Bremen.
Four goals later and Werder Bremen was cruising 6-0. Ouch.
Zizzo didn’t really do much and, as far as I can tell, didn’t get beat for any of the goals, but it has to still be a bit of a bittersweet day for the young winger.
Blowout or not, it’s still good news to see a 21-year-old American player making his debut for a team in the top half of the Bundesliga.
