Jermaine Jones scores in Schalke victory over Stuttgart

The U.S. international found himself a goal from range to help Schalke to a convincing victory.
U.S. national team midfielder Jermaine Jones was on target for his club on Saturday, scoring in Schalke 04's resounding 3-0 victory over VFB Stuttgart at the Vetlins Arena.

Die Knappen were already up by two goals thanks to Jefferson Farfan's earlier double when the 32-year-old American international scored from range in the 79th minute, volleying a powerful shot from well outside the penalty area just inside the post.

The goal is the Eintracht-born Jones' first tally of the season.

The win sees Schalke move onto 24 points in the Bundesliga, good enough for 5th place but 14 off the pace set by Bayern Munich.
