For the second time in as many Europa League contests, Fabian Johnson made an impact with his passing ability.
The U.S. Men’s National Team fullback picked up an assist Thursday in Borussia Moenchengladbach’s 7-0 (10-2 aggregate) victory over Bosnian side FK Sarajevo. With the victory, Moenchengladbach advances to the tournament’s group stages, which will be revealed in a draw Friday.
Johnson played a full 90 minutes on the left wing and his key moment came in the 34th minute. The 26-year-old Johnson added an assist to the scoresheet by finding Branimir Hrgota for the first goal of the Swede’s hat-trick.
