19 year old American Gyau Debuts in Germany

American forward Joe Gyau made his debut for Germany's TSG 1899 Hoffenheim today in a 1-0 loss to second-division SpVgg Greuther Fürth in the quarterfinals of the German Cup. The 19-year-old from Silver Spring, Maryland came on late in the second half in place of American midfielder Fabian Johnson. Gyau drew 3 fouls, but didn't get any shots off in a little over ten minutes of action.

The speedy striker has already shown glimpses of great things to come while playing for the U.S. U-20 team. In December of 2010, Gyau netted a hat trick in a 5-0 win against Canada and he would follow that up with another goal in the CONCACAF U-20 Championships against Suriname.

Gyau is the son of former U.S. National Teamer Phillip Gyau and the grandson of Ghanian footballer Joseph Gyau so it's no surprise that he's taken to the game of soccer so well. Hoffenheim is currently in 8th place in the Bundesliga with a record of 6-8-6.
