Americans Abroad: Sunday Rewind

Paul Arriola Tijuana (CONCACAF)

Sunday wasn’t the busiest day, but it was a fairly productive one for several members of the group of Americans Abroad.

Liga MX action headlined the day, as William Yarbrough played all 90 minutes yet again in Leon’s 1-1 tie with Toluca. Michael Orozco and Jorge Villafana joined the goalkeeper in the 90 minute club, while Paul Arriola entered off the bench in Tijuana’s 2-1 victory over Santos Laguna.

In the Netherlands, Matt Miazga earned a substitute appearance of his own, entering in the second half of Vitesse’s 2-1 loss to Twente.

Here’s a closer look at Sunday’s Americans Abroad:


Terrence Boyd did not dress in RB Leipzig’s 1-1 draw with Cologne.


William Yarbrough started and played 90 minutes while Miguel Ibarra dressed but did not play in Leon’s 1-1 tie with Toluca.

Michael Orozco and Jorge Villafana started and played 90 minutes while Paul Arriola entered as an 83rd minute substitute in Tijuana’s 2-1 win over Santos Laguna. John Requejo, Greg Garza, Amando Moreno and Alejandro Guido did not dress.


Matt Miazga entered as a 64th minute substitute in Vitesse’s 2-1 loss to Twente.

    i have to say, Howard is my #1 with Guzan down to #3 and Yarbrough at #2. i’d honestly even argue i’d prefer Hamid over Guzan.

    regarding Villafana, dude has to get a call in October. the good news, JK alluded at the last camp that he would use the friendlies in October to take a look at players like Villafana. here’s to hoping he actually does…

    Klinsmann is an idiot. Villafana should have been called up and integrated ages ago. If we had him, we could put F Johnson on the left mid position and have more depth.

      Yeah even more idiotic is not calling in this guy Jonathan Bornstein, he has more Liga Mx starts, minutes, and goals than Villafana and he plays on a marginally better team with a better defense. I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t call him in, oh wait yeah I do.

    Schurrle in full team training today, expected to start tomorrow against Real Madrid. There goes the Christian vs Christian match up.
