(Hello all. It has been a few months since CONCACAF Abroad: Weekend Rewind left the regular SBI rotation. It has made its way back. New correspondent GianFranco Panizo, a journalism student from Florida Atlantic University, makes his SBI debut by giving us the latest on how CONCACAF's top players did in Europe this past weekend. Enjoy.)

——————

It was relatively a good weekend for CONCACAF players plying their trade in Europe. Not only did we witness Reggae Boyz Ricardo Fuller and Marlon King score goals in the Hull-Stoke deadlock but Honduran player Julio 'Rambo' Leon gave Serie B side Parma three points with his 70th-minute game winner.

The Jamaicans didn't have all the fun. Mexico's contingent enjoyed a strong weekend as the majority of their European-based players held key roles in their team's wins. Rafael Marquez, Andres Guardado, Ricardo Osorio and Pavel Pardo were among the players to help lead their teams to victories.
