The tie keeps St. Pauli in fourth place in the 2. Bundesliga. It appears to be too late for them to reach third place and earn a spot in the promotion playoffs.

As for Picault, it's an advantageous time for the 25-year old striker and winger to get on a hot streak. It's unlikely that he'll be called into the roster for the Copa America Centenario, but a call-up after the tournament shouldn't be out of the question. The United States men's national team can always use more speed on the wings.

And Klinsmann is watching:

Picault spent his youth career with Serie A club Cagliari before spending time in the North American Soccer League with the Tampa Bay Rowdies and Fort Lauderdale Strikers. He spent six months with Sparta Prague before signing with St. Pauli before the 2015-2016 season.
