Andrew Wooten and Danny Williams haven’t recently been a part of the U.S. Men’s National Team’s plans, but the two Americans shined over the weekend on the club level.
Wooten bagged a brace on Saturday in 2. Bundesliga play while Danny Williams fired a goal of his own for Reading in the English Championship. Wooten’s finishes came in the 60th and 74th minute of Sandhausen’s 3-1 win over Karlsruher, giving the forward his sixth and seventh goals of the season. Williams, meanwhile, scored one of three in Reading’s 3-0 drubbing of Burton Albion.
John Brooks didn’t let his nightmare week with the USMNT keep him down. The centerback returned to Bundesliga action with a 90-minute effort in Hertha Berlin’s 0-0 tie with Augsburg.
Christian Pulisic also had a positive Saturday, even with limited minutes. The young winger entered as a late substitute for Borussia Dortmund in a 1-0 win over rivals Bayern Munich following a pair of starts for the USMNT over the international break.
