Americans Abroad Wednesday Preview: Yedlin, Spector, Alvarado and more


Wednesday may not be the busiest day for Americans Abroad, but there are plenty of intriguing storylines to go around as cup action takes centerstage.

In England, American fullbacks collide in the FA Cup as DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle take on Jonathan Spector and Birmingham City. The latter has been the subject of links to MLS after Birmingham manager Gianfranco Zola stated that the fullback has drawn offers from the league in recent weeks.

Mexican action is headlined by a clash between Santos Laguna and Club America, a match that will see Ventura Alvarado take on his former club. Elsewhere, William Yarbrough and Lyon take on Morelia while Queretaro collides with Cruz Azul.
