Matches in Germany are coming in fast and hard as the Bundesliga looks to make up for lost COVID time. The midweek games went quite well for the Americans as we saw two very nice goals from Weston McKennie and Timmy Chandler, plus another solid performance from the big centerback, John Brooks.

Lets get to the Yanks in Germany:

Weston McKennie - Central Midfielder, Schalke 04

Schalke eventually fell 2-1 at Fortuna Düsseldorf, but McKennie got the scoring started in the 53rd minute with a very nice header. He had the fewest touches, 36, of any outfield player. Watch the goal again below and read more about it HERE.

Timmy Chandler - Defender, Eintracht Frankfurt

The 30-year-old came off the bench in the 81st minute with his team down a goal and it would only take him three minutes to tie the match at 3-3 and take points from Frieburg. Chandler has five goals and an assist in 17 appearances this season. He had enough time to score but not enough time for FotMob to gather enough info for a rating. WATCH THE GOAL

John Brooks - Central Defender, Wolfsburg

It was a fantastic day for Brooks and Wolfsburg on Tuesday as they got a big 4-1 at Bayer Leverkusen, who are just above them on the Bundesliga table. He was subbed out in the 82nd minute and Leverkusen finally got on the board three minutes later.

Tyler Adams - Defensive Midfielder, RB Leipzig

Leipzig settled for a 2-2 draw against Hertha Berlin with Adams playing all 90 minutes. They really could have used some actual home-field advantage because they missed a chance to go level on points with Dortmund for 2nd place. Adams had five tackles, the most in the match.

Josh Sargent - Striker, Werder Bremen

He got the start and played the first 74 minutes as Bremen drew 0-0 with Gladbach. They will be quite happy with the point that keeps them within striking distance of safety.

Gio Reyna - Midfielder, Borussia Dortmund

The youngster entered the match in the 72nd minute as Dortmund searched for the equalizer in Der Klassiker against Bayern Munich, but the match ended 1-0. Great to see the kid get on the field in such a big matchup. I’m sure he’ll never forget the roar of the Yellow Wall that day.

Alfredo Morales - Midfielder, Fortuna Düsseldorf

As disappointing as the loss was for Schalke, it was equally big for Düsseldorf who are fighting relegation. Morales subbed in for the last nine minutes to help secure the win.

Timothy Tillman - Midfielder, Greuther Fürth

21-year-old Tillman got the start and played the first half of a 2-0 loss to Osnabrück. He was subbed out for fellow yank, Julian Green.

Julian Green - Midfielder, Greuther Fürth

He replaced Tillman at halftime but wasn’t able to contribute much more than getting fouled five times, the most of any player. He also got a yellow card for a bad foul.
