Americans Abroad: Sunday Rewind


An American provided a game-saving assist on Sunday, while several others played big minutes in impressive results.

Omar Gonzalez’s headed pass in the 93rd minute paved the way for a Ruben Botta finish, sealing a dramatic late draw for Pachuca in Sunday’s clash with Puebla. Gonzalez went 90 minutes in the match, a feat matched by Geoff Cameron in a 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

In Norway, Ethan Horvath went 90 minutes ahead of a U.S. Men’s National Team call-up while Josh Gatt played a majority of Molde’s 2-0 win over Tromso.

Fabian Johnson wasn’t as lucky, as the USMNT defender played 82 minutes in a 4-0 shellacking at the hands of Schalke.

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

Geoff Cameron started and played 90 minutes in Stoke City’s 1-1 tie with Manchester United.

Cameron Carter-Vickers did not dress for Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Manchester City.

Gedion Zelalem did not dress in Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Burnley.

Fabian Johnson started and played 82 minutes in Borussia Monchengladbach’s 4-0 loss to Schalke.

Omar Gonzalez played 90 minutes and provided AN ASSIST in Pachuca’s 1-1 tie with Puebla.

Rubio Rubin dressed but did not play in FC Utrecht’s 3-2 loss to Ajax.

Josh Gatt started and played 64 minutes while Ethan Horvath played all 90 minutes in Molde’s 2-0 win over Tromso.

    Beautiful knock down from Omar Gonzalez, looked a little like Tony Cascarino there, hehe.

      It would be nice to see some video of Gatt. I’m curious to see if he appears to still have that burst. Thats what really stood out with him before all the injuries.

        Tried to post some links, but they didn’t appear. Just go to MoldeFk.no. About halfway down on the right will be the video box, click on the gray box labeled “se flerer videoer”. Match highlights options will appear. Josh is #2 and very helpfully wears bright orange boots. The Rosenberg game from late September shows more of Josh, but his assist this week was also a nice play.
