Americans Abroad Tuesday Rewind: Alfredo Morales, Weston McKennie and more

Tuesday was full of cup action, and it was Alfredo Morales that proved the standout with a big goal in the DFB-Pokal.

The Ingolstadt midfielder fired the third of three goals for his side, who  picked up a 3-1 win over a Julian Green-less Greuther Furth in Tuesday’s second round German Cup action. Young midfielder Weston McKennie made his return during Tuesday’s action, helping push Schalke to a 3-1 win off the bench while Christian Pulisic did not travel for Borussia Dortmund’s 5-0 drubbing of FC Magdeburg.

In Mexico, all three matches involving Americans went to penalty kicks. Jonathan Bornstein and Queretaro emerged victorious as did the Americans at Club Tijuana, but Rodrigo Lopez and William Yarbrough watched on as their clubs fell from the spot.

  1. kyle scott in the 18 again for chelsea. can’t imagine he’ll see the field, but still a good sign, after his appearance in the 18 against roma.

  2. Really bad sign for Hyndman that he isn’t even getting time in the League Cup. Looks like another January loan is his best bet to get on the field.

    • It might have been better for his career if Hyndman had been purchased by Rangers and continued to play well. It’s hard to make a name for yourself if you are on the bench.

    • Rangers have already stated they’d like to bring him back. So we”ll see what happens, lots of time until 2022 to figure things out. 🙁

  3. Green is injured according to Furth’s website and google translate. He has some kind of a hip adductor problem and isn’t training.
