Last week in the Champions league, USMNT and Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie scored in a stadium where no American has ever scored before. After getting on the end of a Juan Cuadrado cross, McKennie leapt off of both feet and scissor kicked passed Marc-Andre Ter Stegen! The midfielder has been in great form for coach Andrea Pirlo and proved again why he’s one of the most exciting young midfielders in Europe. On loan from FC Shalke in Germany, Juventus have an option to buy McKennie in the Summer. If he keeps this form up it will be a no brainer for the Old Lady and Pirlo to keep hold of the Texan!
