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:

Making his debut for Pumas after transferring from Real Salt Lake, Saucedo scored a beauty after cutting inside from the left wing. The 22-year-old has made one appearance with the Mexico U-20s and, more recently, 19 appearances with the US U-20s (and scored eight goals).
