Watch: Fabian Johnson scores in German Cup for Monchengladbach

Tuesday October 25th, 2016

U.S. men's national team standout Fabian Johnson got on the board for Borussia Monchengladbach Tuesday, scoring in the club's German Cup match against Stuttgart by finishing off a beautiful sequence.

Johnson embarked on a smart run and latched onto Andre Hahn's expert back-heel assist, putting Monchengladbach up 1-0 in the 31st minute. The goal was Johnson's second in all competitions this season and his first since a 1-1 draw against RB Leipzig on Sept. 21.

Johnson is the third U.S. international to score in the competition on Tuesday, joining Bobby Wood and Andrew Wooten. Watch Johnson's below:


Now in his third season at Monchengladbach, Johnson has 11 goals in all competitions with the club.

Presuming full health and fitness, Johnson figures to be a key part of Jurgen Klinsmann's U.S. squad for World Cup qualifiers against Mexico and Costa Rica next month.
