Americans Abroad Wednesday Rewind: Green, Miazga and more


Julian Green stole the show on Wednesday.

The Bayern Munich forward was held quiet for most of Wednesday’s DFB-Pokal clash with Augsburg before popping up just before halftime for his side’s second goal. A flicked on header on a cross from Thomas Muller, Green’s finish, his first competitive goal, helped propel Bayern to a 3-1 win that keeps them in the domestic cup competition.

Matt Miazga also helped his side advance in cup play. The on-loan Chelsea defender played all 90 minutes, helping push Vitesse to a 4-1 win over  RKC Waalwijk.

Elsewhere, Lynden Gooch and Jerome Kiesewetter entered as late substitutes in losing efforts, while Perry Kitchen’s Hearts fell, 2-0, to Kilmarnock.

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


Lynden Gooch entered as an 87th minute substitute in Sunderland’s 1-0 loss to Southampton.


Julian Green played 89 minutes and scored a GOAL in Bayern Munich’s 3-1 win over FC Augsburg.

Jerome Kiesewetter entered as an 80th minute substitute in Fortuna Dusseldorf’s 6-1 loss to Hannover.

Christian Pulisic did not dress for Borussia Dortmund’s 1-1 (3-0) win over Union Berlin. (Pulisic wasdoubtful due to illness.)


Perry Kitchen started and played 88 minutes in Hearts’s 2-0 loss to Kilmarnock.


Matt Miazga started and played 90 minutes in Vitesse’s 4-1 win over RKC Waalwijk.

Rubio Rubin dressed but did not play in FC Utrecht’s 1-0 win over Groningen. Desevio Payne did not dress.


Ventura Alvarado did not dress in Club America’s 1-1 (4-3) loss to Chivas de Guadalajara.

    I posit that few would have predicted a few months ago that Rubio Rubin’s development would be slightly stalled while Julian Green’s would see a bit of an uptick. It would be nice to see both gather momentum in their careers as this season goes along.
