Americans Abroad Tuesday Rewind: Williams, Ream, Gooch and more

In a clash of Americans with Premier League hopes, Danny Williams and Reading came out on top to continue their push for promotion.

Williams and Reading edged past Tim Ream and Fulham, 1-0, on Tuesday, booking their spot in the promotion playoff final. Both Americans played a full 90 minutes, but it was veteran striker Yann Kermorgant who buried a penalty kick early in the second half to send Reading through. Now, Reading awaits the winner of Wednesday’s match, which pits David Wagner and Huddersfield Town against Sheffield Wednesday.
