That Didn’t Take Long: Buddle Scores in Ingolstadt Debut

He’s moved to Germany, but Edson Buddle is picking up right where he left off in Major League Soccer: scoring goals.

After bagging 17 goals in 25 regular-season games for the Los Angeles Galaxy last season, Buddle debuted today for his new Bundesliga 2 side, Ingolstadt, and scored a goal to put his team ahead 1-0 in the 76th minute.

Buddle started the game, and after his well-taken volley with 14 minutes left, his new teammates had to be happy with their latest acquisition—and probably felt they were headed for a much-needed victory over fourth-place Duisberg.

Ingolstadt is 3-12-4 so far this season, and mired in second-to-last place in the 18-team German second flight. So three points against a top-half-of-the-table team would have been huge. It was not to be though, as the visitors snagged a late equalizer to split the points.

Still, a great start for the U.S. striker, and almost a dream debut.
