First, Christian Pulisicon Tuesday, now Weston McKennie on Wednesday. A
pair of American teenagers are showing off their talents with some nifty work for their German clubs on tour in China.
McKennie set up the first goal with a perfectly placed pass to
Amine Harit in Schalke 04's 3-2 win over Turkish champion Besiktas in the first game of its Chinese tour. Fellow American Haji Wright also started for Schalke.
subs Luke Hemmerich and Yevhen Konoplyanka scored the other goals as Schalke raced out to a 3-0 win advantage before Besiktas responded.
New coach Domenico Tedesco
praised his team for its performance in humid conditions in Zhuhai and the goals it created.
“The goal to make it 1-0 from Weston McKennie was created very well,” said
Tedesco. "Both of the other goals were also impressive, as they came from a change in tempo."
Schalke's second friendly in China will be played Friday against Italian club Inter Milan in
