Saturday’s Goalapalooza
   July 21, 2012 (9:29 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post
 

If you follow us on Twitter, you probably noticed that we were pretty busy today as a bunch of different Yanks decided to score goals between league play and preseason friendlies.  Well, here is a little rundown on what happened.

* Josh Gatt came off the bench and scored a goal for Molde FK in their 2-1 loss to Viking, although Gatt had to leave the game early with a thigh injury (highlights here).

* Terrence Boyd made his official debut at Rapid Vienna and walked away with two goals, one assist and one near goal off a bicycle kick as Rapid Vienna won 4-0 (highlights here).

* Herculez Gomez kicked off his 2012 Apertura with the game-winning goal in Santos Laguna’s 2-1 victory over San Luis (highlights here).

* Matt Taylor has returned to the German 3. Liga and scored a goal in Preußen Münster’s season-opening victory over Wacker Burghausen (highlights here).

* Over in Finland, Christian Eissele scored his eighth goal of the season in Kemi Kings’ 2-0 victory over TP-47.

* And in Iceland, Evan Schwartz scored his second goal of the season in Víkingur Reykjavík’s 3-0 win over BÍ / Bolungarvík.

That is just the goals in league play.  A couple other Americans scored in preseason friendlies today.

* Both Maurice Edu and Alejandro Bedoya scored for Rangers as they won 5-1 in a closed-door scrimmage against Albion Rovers.

* Joe Gyau has been playing well Hoffenheim this preseason and notched another goal in a 2-0 win over SV Waldhof Mannheim.  Here is a photo of Gyau from the game.

And while some guys didn’t score, some younger guys took a bigger step today.

* Will Packwood went the full 90 minutes in Birmingham City’s 2-2 draw to Borussia Monchengladbach in a friendly (highlights here).

* Royal-Dominique Fennell made his senior team debut for Stuttgarter Kickers in their 2-1 loss to Hansa Rostock to start up the 3. Liga season (highlights here).

* Both Alfredo Morales and Anthony Brooks played 90 minutes in Hertha Berlin’s 3-2 win over Norwich City in a friendly.

    Big day for us.

    I didn’t know Kemi Kings had 4 Americans. Lets hope they get promoted.

    Expecting big things from Gatt, Boyd, and Gomez for the rest of the season.

    Looks like Hertha is still playing Morales at RB which in my opinion is not his best position. Good to see Anthony Brooks in the starting 11. I hope both play a lot of first team minutes this season.

    Gyau has been in really good form in the pre-season for Hoffenheim. I hope he sees a good fair share of first team minutes this season!!!!!!

    Can’t wait to see both Gatt and Gyau in a Senior USMNT jersey!!!!!

  3. JNavi says:

    got to love how picture of Gyau is him leaving a defender in his dusttrail. Hopefully to be the theme of his career

  4. Justin says:

    Why is Edu and Bedoya still on Rangers!?

  5. William says:

    Justin,

    Bedoya is there to stay looks like. Edu has some suitors in France and Spain from what I have seen. It shouldn’t be too long before Edu is out of there.
