It’s been a week to remember for U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder Weston McKennie. After propelling Schalke to their first win in the UEFA Champions League, McKennie’s continued his strong form in front of goal.
The 20-year-old’s close range finish in the 47th minute, broke a scoreless match between Schalke and Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Suat Serdar’s headed pass hit McKennie in stride which allowed the midfielder to slot in his first career Bundesliga goal.
Guido Burgstaller’s left-footed finish in the 51st minute doubled Schalke’s second-half advantage. The visitors would hang on for their second Bundesliga victory of the season, which sees them jump out of the bottom-three.
However, the midfielder would leave in the 79th minute with an injury that has yet to be determined. McKennie is next to join the USMNT for their pair of upcoming friendlies against Colombia and Peru, but his fitness could be in jeopardy due to his latest knock.
