Yanks Abroad: Wooten & Novakovich racking up goals

New, 129 comments

A recap of the goals from Wooten, Novakovich, & Erik Palmer-Brown, as well as all the other highlights from the Americans playing around the world.

While several Americans are still dealing with injuries, those who are healthy performed quite nicely the past week. Over in Germany, Andrew Wooten now has five goals in his last seven matches. Andrija Novakovich & Erik Palmer-Brown also scored in the Dutch league, with both goals serving as equalizers to earn points.

By the way if you look closely, you might even find a surprise assist from South Korea!


Germany
