Everybody in Germany is scoring!

Because Fafa Picault and Christian Pulisic scoring wasn't enough, Ingolstadt midfielder Alfredo Morales decided to do it as well. The German-American headed in a cross in the 10th minute to put his club up 1-0 after going down a man.

Here's video of the goal:

And here's the customary shout out from Jurgen Klinsmann:

Morales started in the midfield and played the full 90 minutes. It was his first start since January after missing time while dealing with abductor issues.

Ingolstadt -- currently in ninth in the Bundesliga -- tied Hannover 96, 2-2, after blowing a two-goal lead.

Morales has made 12 appearances with the United States national team. Born in Berlin, he began his professional career with Hertha Berlin before moving to Ingolstadt in 2013. In addition to being eligible for Germany and the United States, he could have played for the Peruvian national team due to his father's heritage.

Should we be speculating over the 25-year old's chances of making the Copa America Centenario squad? His past few months have been rough, but for the majority of the 2015-2016 season Morales was a starter for a top half Bundesliga team. It's difficult to imagine that he'll be left at home when the roster is announced.
