It was a very busy weekend for Americans playing abroad, with goals and disappointments coming in equal measure throughout Europe and Mexico.
Terrence Boyd, Matt Miazga and Julian Green led the way in terms of goals, with Boyd proving the headliner with a pair of finishes in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Union Berlin. Miazga, meanwhile, scored the game-winning goal in a 2-0 victory while Green’s finish came in a 4-0 rout of St. Pauli.
It wasn’t all good, though, as both Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie were left frustrated by the Revierderby. McKennie was substituted early with Schalke facing a 4-0 deficit just 25 minutes in while Pulisic suffered through all 90 as his side conceded four straight in a 4-4 draw.
In Mexico, Jonathan Gonzalez and Monterrey sealed their spot in the semifinals while Jose Torres and Tigres did as well at the expense of William Yarbrough and Leon. Tigres went through on a 2-2 aggregate scoreline because they were a higher seed, while Rodrigo Lopez’s Toluca was also eliminated by Morelia after a 3-3 aggregate scoreline.
Elsewhere, Kenny Saief made his return, DeAndre Yedlin was charged with an own goal and Shaq Moore endured a tough day in a lopsided loss to Atletico Madrid.
