While most German teams were still on winter break, Yanks Abroad recorded eight goals over the weekend. Duane Holmes & Sebastian Saucedo’s goals were brilliant finishes that you simply must see. In addition to the goals, Lynden Gooch followed up his brace last weekend with an assist. But perhaps the best news was Josh Sargent’s triumphant return from injury with two goals.

Let’s get to all the goals from our Yanks Abroad:
