He’s done it again.

USMNT striker Aron Johannsson continues to make the most of his second chance with Werder Bremen under manager Florian Kohfeldt.

Johannsson, 27, came off the bench to score a 78th minute equalizer as Bremen came back from a 2-0 deficit to draw at Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday.

He played 12 total minutes across four appearances between Aug. 19 and Jan. 27, but has a goal and two assists in five appearances since Feb. 3.

And Johannsson admitted he’s driven by getting back in the USMNT frame, saying:

“The biggest thing in football is for me to play and represent my country. I hope I can continue to have some minutes on the pitch and score some goals and play for the national team again.”

The point boosts Bremen three points clear of 16th place Mainz and 10 clear of 17th place Hamburg.

Bremen is 3-1-1 in those matches, and the 35-year-old Kohfeldt is now 7W-4D-5L since taking over at Werder Bremen.

Here’s the goal.
