With World Cup qualifiers looming, several U.S. Men’s National Team stars made big impacts over the weekend, but none bigger than Bobby Wood.
The USMNT forward scored a goal in a Hamburg win, leading his side to a 3-1 victory over FC Koln on Friday. He was one of several USMNT regulars to step up over the weekend as Christian Pulisic helped lead Borussia Dortmund to a win while Geoff Cameron helped anchor Stoke City to a draw.
On the injury front, two big-name USMNT regulars featured just before linking up with the USMNT. Omar Gonzalez went a full 90 as Pachuca fell to Club Tijuana on Friday while the returning Fabian Johnson made a substitute appearance for Borussia Monchengladbach in his return from a back injury.
Elsewhere, Romain Gall provided an assist in Sweden, Timmy Chandler went a full 90 in defeat and youngster Jonathan Gonzalez continued his rise with another 90 minutes for Monterrey.
Here’s a closer look at this weekend’s Americans Abroad:
