Americans Abroad: Tuesday Rewind

It’s only a Tuesday, but a good amount of Americans Abroad turned in some admirable shifts.

Most of the action took place in England, but not in the English Premier League. Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan was benched, but many more Americans stepped up their games in the Championship.

Midfielder Duane Holmes, 21, scored his first league goal for Huddersfield Town, while Reading midfielder Danny Williams also found the back of the net on Tuesday.

Williams rose high near the six-yard box and powered in a header for the club’s game-tying goal in a 1-1 tie against Derby County. Meanwhile, 19-year-old Emerson Hyndman saw playing time for Fulham, but ended up receiving a yellow card in the club’s 3-2 loss to Wolverhampton Wanders.

In Dubai, Christian Pulisic shined in a friendly for Borussia Dortmund, providing an assist in a 4-0 friendly win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Here are how the Americans Abroad did on Tuesday:

  1. Does anyone know what the latest is with Hyndman and Fulham? Clearly, the new manager has no issues giving him playing time but is it still all but concluded that he will leave the club sometime this year?

  2. His play this year has been fairly poor. After two or three seasons of basically singlehandedly saving Villa from the drop, he’s finally falling apart.

    After nearly 3 decades, keeper may be the #1 concern for the USMNT as we head into 2016. Howard and Guzan are both badly off form, and the best “young” keeper, Hamid, can’t stay healthy.

  3. Villa hasn’t gotten results, so benching Guzan makes sense. Hopefully it won’t last, or he’ll move elsewhere soon since his time recently has been real inconsistent
