Ethan Horvath has continued to man between the posts for Belgian Pro League side Club Brugge after holding the No. 1 spot last season. The 24-year-old U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper continued to start for Brugge as the club picked up its first three points of the new season.
A 3-1 road win over Waasland-Beveren has spring Brugge to the top spot in Belgium after Matchday 1. Hans Vanaken scored twice for Brugge who used a trio of goals to erase a first-half deficit on the road. Horvath has showed zero signs of relinquishing the No. 1 spot for Brugge after starring in the UEFA Champions League last campaign.
Horvath and Co. will next be in action on Aug. 2nd at home against St. Truiden.

Julian Green got the nod in Greuther Furth’s season opener, however the playmaker could not help his side avoid a 2-0 loss.
