U.S. Abroad: Fabian Johnson is on fire

American midfielder Fabian Johnson is suddenly one of the hottest scorers in Germany. He scored two more goals -- both golazos -- for Borussia Moenchengladbach in its 3-3 tie with Hoffenheim to go along with goals in each of his last two UEFA Champions League games for Gladbach. He also scored the winning goal for the USA in its 6-1 win over St. Vincent & the Grenadines in their World Cup 2018 qualifying opener.

Johnson opened the scoring when he made a great run into the area to take a pass from Mahmoud Dahoud, took one touch as he ran to his right and then rolled a shot off the far post to his left and into the goal.

Johnson's second goal completed a 3-1 comeback as he struck in the 87th minute after breaking in from the right wing.

The goals against Hoffenheim, his former club, give him three Bundesliga goals for the season, tied for the most in a season in his eight-year pro career in Germany.

    Well-taken goals from FJ, glad he is bringing his attacking mind-set to the US midfield. Would like to see JK use a 4-1-3-2 w/ MB or JJ protecting our back line and FJ on the left like he plays for his club.

    That first goal was the result of some terrific ball movement,

    That is what the game is all about. Loved it now I am going to watch it again, and again and again.
