U.S. Abroad: Saief scores his first goal for Anderlecht, then misses penalty kick

Kenny Saief scored his first goal for Anderlecht since joining the Belgian powerhouse in its 2-2 tie with Waasland-Beveren on Wednesday.

Saief had the tying goal in the 83rd minute, then had a chance to win the game in stoppage time but missed his penalty kick.

The Israeli-American moved to Anderlecht on loan from Gent during the winter break and was reunited with Hein Vanhaezebrouck, who was his coach at Gent. Saief, who debuted for the USA in July, had been sidelined after hernia surgery and health issues that followed the surgery.
