Julian Green came into Friday’s contest with Bochum, failing to record a point in his last six matches. The 23-year-old U.S. Men’s National Team winger halted his slide with a game-tying assist in league play.
Green’s 91st minute assist on Daniel Keita-Ruel’s equalizer helped Greuther Furth to a home point in a 2-2 draw. Furth came into the second-half facing a two-goal deficit after Bochum came out flying in the opening 45 minutes.
After pulling a goal back, Furth got a superb assist from Green to help set them up for a chance at a point A through ball by Green allowed Keita-Ruel to slide home the equalizer at Trolli Arena which saw Furth jump to fifth in the 2.Bundesliga table.
Elsewhere, Kyle Scott scored for Telstar in a league win at home. Josh Sargent and Sebastian Soto both scored goals in respective league matches for their clubs in lower league play while Romain Gall scored in his third consecutive match for Malmo.
Antonee Robinson played the full 90 minutes for Wigan Athletic despite a loss to Leeds United. Eric Lichaj also started for Hull City in their clean sheet win at home, while Duane Holmes earned his first start with Derby County later receiving praise from manager Frank Lampard. Ethan Horvath returned to the Club Brugge starting XI after keeping a clean sheet midweek for the Belgian side.

SWISS PRO LEAGUE

After a few injuries, they may be limiting Pulisic’s minutes… Unless they’re not, which sucks. He has been the best player on the field whenever he plays. I rate him above McKennie and I like McKennie a lot…
Honestly, I think he has stagnated a bit since his recent injury. Sancho is playing much better at the moment and deservedly starting over Pulisic.
What has happened to Tim Weah ?
Sorry i forgot to add that in but he didnt start on Monday
Lot of minutes this weekend which is great! Next step is getting more Ws with all these minutes
A point? Is Green playing ice hockey?
Yedlin’s still the best American player.
I think McKennie has the most upside of any American player overseas (even Pulisic!).
Looks like Pulisic has lost his starting spot 🙁
Dortmund rotates a bunch, and Pulisic did go 120’ in the midweek game, so hopefully he’s he was just getting some rest.
Between the Bundesliga, the Champions Leauge and the German Cup, there will be a lot of games and it looks like Pulisic, Sancho, Bruun Larson and maybe Gotze will be rotating to some extent. Wolf also may get some playing time, although he seems to be odd man out right now. Sancho may be ahead of Pulisic, but I don’t think any other winger-type is clearly better than Pulisic.
As Chase said, Pulisic played 120′ in the Cup game on Wednesday, so it was no surprise that he didn’t start against Wolfsburg.
Also, Sancho could get sold over the winter and may not be there in January.
Nova has been injured haven’t heard much else
