John Brooks

Hertha Berlin’s defense finally had a hiccup as they lost 4-2 at FC Köln. Brooks was beaten for one of the goals but he scored one himself on the other end. The 24 year old got on the end of a corner kick with a powerful header. Watch below:

Emerson Hyndman

The 20 year old scored a goal in Rangers’ 4-0 win this weekend. Hyndman is getting some really quality minutes and has been looking great while on loan from Bournemouth.

Alex Morgan

She added another brace for OL Lyon in a 5-0 win over Abli. Life in France for Morgan is off to a blistering start. Goal highlights below:

Crystal Dunn

Made her debut for Chelsea and netted a goal to boot. But half the team did as well in the 7-0 win over Doncaster.

Aron Johannsson

After falling down the pecking order at Werder Bremen, Johannsson finally got back on the pitch this weekend. But he entered in the 73rd min and only had a couple looks that didn’t amount to anything. However Bremen got the big 3-0 win over RB Leipzig.

Carli Lloyd

It was yet another debut for one of our girls over in Europe as Lloyd started for Manchester City in their 1-0 defeat of Reading. Lloyd was played out wide instead of her usual central position but seemed to be adapting. Full match is below.

Bobby Wood

Went the full 90 in a scoreless draw with Eintracht Frankfurt. But he picked up a knock somewhere along the lines and has been replaced on the USMNT roster. This problem with his back will be devastating to the US as Bobby has been far & away the best striker the country can offer.

Christian Pulisic

Started for Dortmund on Friday against Ingolstadt. Did not have the best of matches and was subbed out for Schürrle in the 77’ min.

Geoff Cameron

Playing defensive midfielder, Cameron was actually one of the best players on the field for Stoke. But Chelsea were too much as they look to clinch the title and Stoke were defeated 2-1.

Timmy Chandler

Turned in a solid performance for Eintracht Frankfurt. He played the full match in the defensive midfield position totaling five interceptions, two clearances & nine duels won.

Alfredo Morales

Subbed out in the 90th minute in favor of attacking reinforcements as Ingolstadt looked to equalize in the 1-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund.
