USMNT’s Malik Tillman dribbles from midfield for Rangers goal (video)

Bukayo Saka's powerful close-range strike made the difference at Elland Road, lifting Arsenal to victory over Leeds United.

Malik Tillman’s on the board again for Glasgow Rangers, scoring Sunday against Motherwell.

Tillman took a short pass from James Tavernier just short of the halfway stripe and sprinted forward with a half-dozen touches.

He outran Stuart McKinstry and Ross Tierney, cut between Sean Goss and Ricki Lamie, and from 6 yards slid a right-foot shot past sliding goalkeeper Liam Kelly.

It was the third goal of the season for the 20-year-old, who scored against Belgium’s Union Saint-Gilloise in Champions League qualifying on Aug. 9 and against St Johnstone in the SPL four days later.

Tillman was loaned from Bayern Munich to Rangers for the season last July.

Tillman was born in Germany to a father in the U.S military and a German mother. He played for the U.S. under-15 team in 2016 and for Germany at several youth levels, then switched to the U.S. and made his national team debut on June 1.

He has made four international appearances and is bidding for a spot on the World Cup roster.
