American striker Bivok bid to qualify for the World Cup helped Union Berlin

Berlin (AFP) – Jordan Bivok’s bid to get the United States World Cup team helps the Berlin Federation in an unprecedented period at the top of the German Bundesliga.

Pivok scored the first goal in Al Ittihad’s victory over Wolfsburg on Sunday, just four days after being left out of American coach Greg Berhalter’s 26-man squad for the two games against Japan and Saudi Arabia.

Who doesn’t hope to play in the World Cup when their country qualifies? Pefok asked.

Berhalter said he already knew what Pivok could do. But with only two months left before the tournament in Qatar, Bivok wants to be sure.

The 26-year-old striker tormented Wolfsburg’s defense, repeatedly tracked it down, and then capped his display with a lightning header that took his tally to three goals in six Bundesliga matches this season so far.

Union went on to win 2-0, opening a two-point lead over Borussia Dortmund after seven games. It is the first time that Köpenick has been at the top. The federation was only promoted to the German Bundesliga in 2019.
