Johnson scores in Hoffenheim loss

It may have have happened in a loss, but Fabian Johnson scored his first goal for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on Saturday.

Johnson opened his account with the club he joined last summer by netting in the second half of Hoffenheim's 3-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund. Johnson got on the end of a low cross and one-timed a powerful shot into the back of the net to prevent Hoffenheim from getting shut out for a second consecutive game.

Johnson started and played 77 minutes in the match for Hoffenheim, while fellow U.S. international Danny Williams started and went the distance at centerback. Looking to make his debut with the club, U.S. U-23 winger Joe Gyau dressed but did not play.

Here is Johnson's goal:
