Weston McKennie returned to Bundesliga action in Schalke's 1-0 win over Hertha Berlin on Saturday, following injury.

The 19-year-old USA international, who suffered a partial rupture to the medial collateral ligament in his right knee during the Matchday 19 draw with Hannover - missing the Royal Blues' next five Bundesliga outings as a result - replaced Breel Embolo in the 80th minute.

McKennie, enjoying his breakthrough campaign in the Bundesliga, has made 18 first-team appearances in all competitions for Schalke so far this season.

He also earned his first senior international cap with the USA in November, scoring a debut goal in the 1-1 draw with European champions Portugal.
