    The linked article leaves out some Amerikaner in the top level of the Bundesliga, although the comments to the article do mention a couple. Julian Green is with VfL Stuttgart who were promoted to 1st division this year. Tim Chandler usually starts at Eintracht Frankfurt. There is also an American youngster at Schalke, Weston McKennie. There is a bunch of Americans or dual citizens/US eligible playing in the 2nd Bundesliga. Youngster Haji Wright has been loaned from Schalke 04 to Sandhausen, Alfredo Morales is with Ingolstadt who were relegated from 1st. Jann George came up from 3rd division this year with Jahn Regensburg. Jerome Kiesewetter is at Düsseldorf, Andrew Wooten at Sandhausen, Terrence Boyd and McKinze Gaines play for Darmstadt. I don't know if these guys are real young but we have a Kenneth Kronholm at Holstein Kiel, Russell Carouse at Bochum and Mael Carboz with Duisburg (also a team that was promoted this year from the third Bundesliga). I did see Isaiah Young with Bremen's second team in the 3rd division but did not look any further.

    Chandler opened the scoring today for Eintracht Frankfurt as they had an easy 0-3 win in the German Football Cup first round. George played 90 and assisted on at least one of the goals in Regensburg's 3-1 victory over Darmstadt. (I didn't realize until today that George was once called up to camp for the US U-23s when he was still playing in Nürnberg. He's 24 now so he will have to start impressing Arena soon.) For Darmstadt Terence Boyd dressed but did not play, while McKinze Gaines played 57 minutes.

    It was only Friday night that, in response to Aisijimo's question, I went through the team rosters for Second Bundesliga teams on Fussballdaten.de and saw Canouse was on Bochum's roster (on loan from Hoffenheim.) As of this evening they have already taken him off of the Bochum roster, so I guess one can rely on them to keep current. Yanks-Abroad has also removed him. In some other German Cup (DFB Pokal) action this weekend - Bobby Wood scored for Hamburg on Saturday. J.A. Brooks left his game early (37th minute) with an injury - I don't know how serious yet. The Washington Posts "Soccer Insider Americans Abroad Weekend Roundup" identifies more Americans in the First and Second Bundesligen that neither the OP link nor the list in my response had mentioned. It's exciting to see so many Americans getting the great training and experience there.

    The only reason I knew is that I heard the comment on SiriusXM.

    Watching the German Cup replay of Hamburg v. Osnabruck right now, and 3rd division Osna is up 3-0 on Hamburg with 20 minutes left.

    All 3 goals for the 3rd division team were scored down to 10 men, with a red card shown to an Osna player early on.

    Bobby Wood is not having a good game, and this is one of the most inept performances I've seen for a top tier team.

    Wood is about to take a PK on a hand ball in the box.

    Looks like they need to blow this team up and start again. Relegation candidates.

    Interestingly enough, they are the only club to have never been relegated from the top tier.

    Did anyone see Pulisic's brilliant solo goal against Bayern Munich a week or so ago?

    These knuckleheads fight for their relegation lives every year; they have a clock in their stadium showing how long they've been in the Bundesliga. Everyone who isn't a HSV fan would love to see that clock reset to 0:00:00 because they are sick of hearing about them. They've been mismanaged for years but always hang on by the skin of their teeth.
