Bobby Wood’s start with Hannover appeared to be frustrating with the forward lacking both goals and consistent starts. The U.S. Men’s National Team striker ended both on Saturday, scoring his first brace for the club in a 3-1 win over Stuttgart.
Wood headed in a pair of first-half goals which helped Hannover to their first league victory of the season. The 25-year-old found the back of the net in the 30th and 45th minutes respectively which handed Hannover a two-goal lead going into halftime. The hosts would eventually hang on for their first three points in Bundesliga play. Now as Wood joins the USMNT for a pair of friendlies, he should be full of confidence after his play on Saturday.
Elsewhere, Weston McKennie continued his impressive run of form with another goal for Schalke. Despite the goal, McKennie had to leave the match with an apparent injury. Geoff Cameron also found the back of the net for QPR, helping them to a home draw.
Emerson Hyndman registered his first goal for Scottish Premier League outfit Hibernian, while Romain Gall moved to 11 goals this season in the Allsvenskan. Andrija Novakovich, Omar Gonzalez, and Kenny Saief all stood out in individual performances for their respective clubs as well.
