German Fans Provide Their Team with Helpful Reminder During Goal Drought

Hi There. We’ve spent the past few days reeling from the U.S. U-23’s recent ouster from Olympic qualifying buried under day-job duties, but we’re attempting to get back on track today.

The choreographed instruction worked as Magdeburg forward Chris Wright, a Californian who played college ball at the University of New Mexico, scored  against Berliner AK ’07 to end a 558-minute goal drought.

Alas, Berliner snatched a late goal to win the game 2-1 and leave Magdeburg at the bottom of the table.
