Video: Fabian Johnson and Bobby Wood Score

February 14, 2016

It hasn’t been the greatest year for Americans playing abroad, but three of the U.S.’s standard bearers in Europe – Fabian Johnson, Bobby Wood and Alejandro Bedoya – all ended up on the scoresheet this weekend in various forms.

First, here is Fabian Johnson’s goal, giving Borussia Monchengladbach a 1-0 lead over Hamburg.

Bobby Wood also got on the board with this effort in Union Berlin’s 2-0 win over 1860 Munich – which also happens to be Wood’s former club.

And finally, here is Alejandro Bedoya’s assist in Nantes’ 2-1 win over Lorient.

Bedoya was also featured on Nantes’ gameday program.

Elsewhere, red-hot Danny Williams missed out this week with what Reading is calling a “slight knock”.

And in the “Europe isn’t always better” category, Shane O’Neill – once projected to be on the shortlist for United States men’s national team contention – is sitting the bench at League Two side Cambridge.

One other area to note – although it doesn’t directly involve an American – is the report by ESPN’s Jeff Carlisle that Seattle Sounders’ striker Obafemi Martins may be headed to China.

If the move goes through, that should open up a significant amount of immediate playing time for youngster Jordan Morris – an opportunity for the American goal-scorer to get experience right from the start of the 2016 MLS season.
