Schalke has a number of talented Americans scattered throughout the club’s system, and one joined the first team for training on Tuesday.
Nick Taitague was one of five Schalke youth team players to join the first team for Tuesday’s training session. A total of 13 Schalke players are currently on international duty, including the U.S. Men’s National Team’s Weston McKennie.
