A SportBild article before the game was headlined, "Tedesco's Darling," referring to how fond Schalke coach Domenico Tedesco is of the Texas product.
"Weston has no fear," Tedesco said. "He always wants the ball, no matter how tight the space is. He's not satisfied with just swimming along, but wants to make an impact."
McKennie came oh so close to scoring his first Bundesliga goal in the fourth minute when he met a pass from Guido Burgstaller one yard from the goal line, but slid into the ball and knocked it wide.
The SportBild article that said McKennie runs more than seven and a half miles almost every game.
