Sunday was a very bad day for Stoke City, but a very good day for U.S. Men’s National Team plans awaiting the return of one of the team’s star defenders.
Geoff Cameron made his long-awaited return to action on Sunday, coming in as a late substitute in Stoke’s 4-0 loss to Tottenham. Cameron had been sidelined since late October with a knee injury and his return to the field comes just several weeks ahead of the USMNT’s crucial pair of World Cup qualifiers against Panama and Honduras.
In Germany, Fabian Johnson and Alfredo Morales went head-to-head, and it was the former that came out on top in a 2-0 Borussia Monchengladbach win. Julian Green and Russell Canouse both joined the fray as substitutes in 2. Bundesliga action as their respective teams earned wins on the day.
Elsewhere, Matt Miazga went all 90 minutes as Vitesse cruised on their way to seventh in the Eredivisie table.
