Schalke's Jermaine Jones capped a breakout by firing true to pull the visitors level at Champions League round-of-16 hosts Galatasaray. Besides the important away goal leveler, the midfielder also became the first American to score during the knockouts of this tourney since... Jermaine Jones, nearly five years ago.
CORRECTION UPDATE: I made an oops above, which was kindly pointed out by USMNT press officer Michael Kammerman. My memory did not serve this time; Jones' 2008 strike against Porto was a spot kick after 120 minutes - not a goal. That means DaMarcus Beasley's 2005 tally against Monaco was the last American goal in the Champions League knockouts.
