Watch: Fabian Johnson scores opener for Mönchengladbach vs. Hamburg

Sunday February 14th, 2016

U.S. national team defender/midfielder Fabian Johnson keeps on getting goals for Borussia Monchengladbach, adding another one to his tally this season after scoring the opener against Hamburg on Sunday. 

Playing as a left midfielder, Johnson scored after Thorgan Hazard provided a cross into the box from the right flank. However, Hazard's cross was defelcted soon after he hit it. Waiting at the back post, Johnson made the necessary adjustment to the ball's new path, evading his defender and deftly tapping the ball over the line in the 14th minute.
