A week ago saw 20-year-old Haji Wright earn his first career Bundesliga minutes for Schalke in a home rout. Saturday saw Wright follow-up his debut with a 70-minute start in his side’s 1-1 road draw at Hoffenheim.
The former New York Cosmos striker started in a two-forward attack for Schalke, and earned valuable minutes for a team needing a spark up front. Wright won two duels and made one successful tackle, but was unable to get a shot on target in the match. He was later replaced by U.S. compatriot Weston McKennie who was returning from injury. Although a quiet performance, Wright will certainly get more cracks for Schalke who are four points from the top-half of the Bundesliga table.
Elsewhere, Ethan Horvath posted another clean sheet for Club Brugge in a 3-0 home success. Bobby Wood earned another start for Hannover but was unable to help his side to a win at home, while Christian Pulisic missed Borussia Dortmund’s win due to a calf injury.
DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle fell 3-0 at home to West Ham United while Tim Ream remained a spectator for Fulham. Eric Lichaj left Hull City’s road win in London due to a calf injury. Cameron Carter-Vickers, Erik Palmer-Brown, and Geoff Cameron all earned starts for their respective clubs.
