Get the best email in soccer.
Malik Tillman has done it again. The 20-year-old attacking midfielder scored a headed goal for the second game in-a-row on Saturday during Rangers’ 4-0 victory vs. St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership.
In the 32nd minute Tillman scored the opener with a giant leap at the back post. With a height of 6 feet and 1 inch the kid is becoming quite the aerial threat.

MALIK TILLMAN, AGAIN https://t.co/W8JjLpcxxU— USMNT (@USMNT) August 13, 2022
On Tuesday the American youngster scored a dramatic game-winner in the UEFA Champions League to help Rangers advance to the next round of qualifying. Just look at how high Tillman jumped to beat the goalkeeper.

Tillman surprised the soccer world when he announced he was switching his nationality to represent the United States instead of Germany. USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter sees something in him as Tillman got his first appearances for the national team in June.
Berhalter will have a difficult decision deciding which players will represent the U.S. in Qatar this winter at the World Cup. Tillman is one of the fringe players who may or may not make the cut. A few more of these headed goals this season with Rangers and he might just sneak on the plane to Qatar.
