Tyler Adams is not known for scoring goals, but it’s not exactly foreign to him either. Over his career he’s had his fair share of moments of putting the ball into the back of the net. Now, after more than 30 appearances, the U.S. international has finally scored the first Bundesliga goal of his career.

Playing as a right midfielder/right wingback in a 3-4-3 variation for RB Leipzig, Adams latched onto a shot off the the crossbar to tap-in his first league goal since arriving in Germany in 2019.
Of course, this isn’t the first time he’s found the net for Leipzig as he scored the goal to send his club to the Champions League semifinals last year. Still, it’s great to see him getting on the scoresheet in league play.
With the goal, an American has now scored for 22 different clubs in Germany’s top flight and breaks a somewhat historic scoring drought for himself:
Today is the 38th Bundesliga game for Tyler Adams.— Paul Carr (@PaulCarr) January 23, 2021
He had played more Bundesliga games without a goal than any other U.S. non-keeper.
That "honor" now returns to Gregg Berhalter, who played 23 Bundesliga games without scoring.
