Wooten scores another late goal, but Sandhausen suffer defeat

For a remarkable fourth straight match and second time in four days, Andrew Wooten scored a late goal for Sandhausen.

Only this time it was not a winner.

Wooten netted his fourth goal of the season on Friday, converting a 92nd-minute penalty kick in SV Sandhausen’s 2-1 defeat to TSV Eintracht Braunschweig. Wooten, 24, came close to equalizing seconds later, but his attempt near the death was denied by the post.

The defeat snapped Sandhausen’s winning streak at three games. Wooten scored in the 80th minute or later in each of those 1-0 victories.

The latest goal from the German-American forward means he finishes September as the only Sandhausen player to score. It will also further garner attention from U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann ahead of a pair of October friendlies, and could wind up earning the former U.S. Under-23 national team player his first full team call-up.

What do you think of Wooten scoring a late goal in a fourth straight match? Will he keep this scoring tear going? Should he earn a call-up from Klinsmann in October?
