CONCACAF Players Abroad: Weekend Rewind

Know your enemy. Sun Tzu said it, as have countless others through the centuries. Here at SBI, we feel you, as American soccer fans, should know your enemies too (enemies on the soccer field that is).

So it is time to start updating you on how the other players in the region are doing in Europe. This will become a weekly update on how CONCACAF players are doing in Europe’s top leagues (and just like for Americans Abroad, the English Coca Cola Championship and Bundesliga 2 will be regarded as top leagues).

If you were curious about how Mexico and Canada’s (and any other country in the region’s) top players are doing across the pond, or how Honduran superstar David Suazo (pictured) is doing in Italy, this will become the place to find out.

Now, without further ado. Here is how the rest of CONCACAF’s players did in Europe this weekend:

Please feel free to add other CONCACAF players to this list in the comments section. Preferably players from European first divisions and the second divisions of England, Italy, Germany and Spain. You can add other players from other divisions but I won’t be including them in the weekly roundup because that would take WAY too much time.
