Goodson nets goal in Brondby's fight against relegation

The U.S. center back scored his Danish side's goal in a 1-1 draw, leading to a valuable point in the club's quest to stay up.
Clarence Goodson does not score that frequently, but the U.S. national team center back's latest goal could not have come at a better time for his Danish club, Brondby.

Goodson's 37th-minute goal accounted for his side's only tally in a 1-1 draw with AGF Aarhus, helping to net a valuable point in Brondby's fight against relegation. For Goodson, the goal was his first strike since Aug. 18, but he was forced to leave the match in the 64th minute with an undisclosed injury, according to game reports.

The draw extended Brondby's unbeaten streak to four games (1-0-3) and has the club hovering directly above the Danish Superliga drop zone. Brondby is two points clear of Horsens, which has a game in hand, and the two clubs fittingly close the season against one another on May 20.
