Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: McKennie, Steffen, and more

By

Schalke made it back-to-back league wins since the return of league play and Weston McKennie was a big part of Friday’s recent victory.

McKennie started and played the full 90 minutes in Schalke’s 2-1 home win over Union Berlin. Playing in his midfield role, McKennie won 14 of 23 duels for Schalke, while helping limit a Union Berlin side who has done well in its return to the Bundesliga. McKennie made nine recoveries, won one tackle, made two clearances, and was a physical presence defensively. The win for Schalke moved them to third in the league stands, three points behind leaders RB Leipzig.

Up next is a trip to Bayer Leverkusen for McKennie and the rest of the Schalke team.

Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic was lively but was unable to help Chelsea avoid a London Derby defeat to West Ham United. Every American player in the EFL Championship went the distance this weekend with Tim Ream, Matt Miazga, and Geoff Cameron the headlining performers. Weston McKennie and Zack Steffen starred in Bundesliga play, Erik Palmer-Brown continued to earn starts for Austria Wien, and Terrence Boyd scored a magnificent game-winning goal for FC Hallescher.
