United States national team centerback Clarence Goodson made his return to Brondby's starting lineup Thursday and scored in the club's 3-0 win over Esbjerg.
Goodson, who made an appearance as a substitute last week, started for the first time since breaking his toe and scored on a header off a corner kick just before halftime to put Brondby out front.
With seven games remaining in the Danish Superliga season, Brondby sits in third place and would qualify for the UEFA Europa League if it finishes third or fourth. The club is two points behind Odense BK for second place and the league's UEFA Champions League qualifying spot that comes along with it.
What do you think of Goodson's progress? Where do you think he fits in the national team picture? Do you think he should be starting during the Gold Cup?
