Video: USMNT’s John Brooks opens scoring for Wolfsburg


John Brooks and Wolfsburg are off and running in their Bundesliga opener, as the U.S. Men’s National Team defender scored in his 100th league appearance on Saturday.

The USMNT center back will find that he won’t score many goals easier than this one, after getting a free header in the 33rd minute just yards out from net, which Brooks converted with ease.

Wolfsburg took a 1-0 lead into halftime against Schalke courtesy of the Brooks goal, which is his seventh-career Bundesliga finish.

Brooks is in his first season with Wolfsburg, after joining the club from Hertha Berlin during the summer.
