MNT Weekend Rewind: Strong Club Performances Continue Ahead of World Cup Qualifying

With MNT camp convening on Monday in Jacksonville, a number of players slated to join the U.S. Men’s National Team ahead of its World Cup Qualifying matches at St. Vincent and the Grenadines (Sept. 2 at 3:30 p.m. ET on beIN SPORTS) and against Trinidad & Tobago (Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. ET on FS1 and Univision Networks) put in strong performances for their clubs this weekend.

Chief among them was Bobby Wood. Making his league debut for Hamburg on the first day of the Bundesliga season, the MNT forward picked up where he left off last year with Union Berlin, getting on the end of a flicked-on header then muscling off his marker before sending a shot inside the near post in the 30th minute of a 1-1 draw with Ingolstadt. The goal was Hamburg’s first of the new season as well as Wood’s first in the Bundesliga.

While he didn’t get into Borussia Dortmund’s season opening win vs. Mainz, MNT midfielder Christian Pulisic did find the back of the net once again in the club’s friendly vs. Hallescher. In the 23rd minute, the 17-year-old attacker made a nice cutting run to get on the end of a through ball before slotting his effort inside the right post.

In England, Brad Guzan made his third-straight start for Middlesbrough and made two saves to earn his first clean sheet for the club in their 0-0 draw at West Bromwich Albion. Center back Geoff Cameron also made his first start of the season, going the full 90 minutes in Stoke City’s 2-1 loss at Everton on Saturday.

Back Stateside, Jordan Morris scored the ninth goal of his rookie MLS campaign in Seattle Sounders FC’s 4-2 defeat at Portland Timbers. Following a first-half onslaught that saw Portland go into the break up 4-0, Seattle responded with two quick goals, first from Andreas Ivanschitz in the 47th minute before Nicolas Lodeiro served a perfect cross for Morris, who glanced a header inside the left corner to give Seattle some hope in the 51st. However, Morris’ goal would be the last as Portland closed out the Cascadia Cup clash.

The previous day, defender Steve Birnbaum kept up his offensive output, assisting on Patrick Nyarko’s 51st minute goal in D.C. United’s wild 6-2 win against Chicago Fire. With D.C. leading 3-2 just after the break, Lloyd Sam’s corner kick found Birnbaum, who nodded to keep the ball alive before it fell for Nyarko. The Ghanaian attacker hit a half volley that just crept over the line to extend United’s lead to two goals. Birnbaum has two goals and two assists in his last five matches for D.C.

WATCH: Steve Birnbaum racks up another assist

And finally, while Colorado Rapids may have fallen to Real Salt Lake 2-1 in their Rocky Mountain Cup clash on Friday night, Tim Howard continued to show why he remains in the MNT goalkeeping picture. Trailing 2-1 late, RSL was awarded an 83rd minute penalty kick which saw Javier Morales hit a blistering effort that Howard anticipated perfectly, making a full-extension save at the top right corner.

Take a full look at how players called into MNT camp fared in their club matches over the past week.
