Zack Steffen Is Named The Bundesliga’s Best Player ... Of The Past Week

24-year-old USMNT goalkeeper Zack Steffen is two matches into his Fortuna Düsseldorf career, and so far he’s helped his club into the second round of the DFB-Pokal and collected Bundesliga Player of the Week honors after recording 10 saves in Düsseldorf’s league-opening victory over Werder Bremen on Saturday.

Trio Of Teenage American Strikers Poised For Big Year In Europe

With the likes of Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie and Tyler Adams reshaping the way we view the USMNT midfield, an overhaul of the striker position will eventually follow suit. The Gold Cup was more of the same with Jozy Altidore and Gyasi Zardes leading the line, but it’s a trio of 19-year-olds in Europe that now have an opportunity to stake their claim if they should first make the breakthrough at club level.

Jadon Sancho Again Proves Why Dortmund Was Just Fine Selling Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic already looks like he’s going to be a good signing for Chelsea. The 20-year-old American has been impressive so far with the Blues, putting in a stellar performance against Barcelona and scoring twice against Salzburg.
