USMNT fans can use these weekly reminders about Zack Steffen‘s quality given his poor recent performances with the national team.

On loan from Man City, the Fortuna Dusseldorf goalkeeper has been very good for his Bundesliga outfit and made not one, not two, but three quality interventions against Borussia Monchengladbach’s Breel Embolo on Sunday.

Dusseldorf led 1-0 in the 12th minute when the Swiss speedster beat the trap and tried his hand at chipping Steffen.

The 24-year-old slapped that into the air, then dove to stymy Embolo’s rebound bid before sticking out a leg to block the forward’s square ball back into the mix.

Excellent stuff from Steffen.
