Americans Abroad: Weekend Preview


Geoff Cameron and Stoke City will look to get back to winning form this weekend against Sunderland, while DeAndre Yedlin’s side battle for their place in next year’s Premier League.

Cameron’s side is set for mid-table obscurity after a slew of recent poor results, but Mark Hughes’ men will look at this game as a chance to stop that slide. Yedlin’s Sunderland is tied on points with Norwich City, though, and is only out of the drop zone on goal differential.

Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic will look to continue his scintillating form against Wolfsburg. The 17-year-old can make his fourth consecutive league start after becoming the youngest player to score twice in the Bundesliga last weekend.

In 2. Bundesliga action, Bobby Wood will have another chance to increase his impressive goal tally against VfL Bochum. Fafa Picault will look to capitalize on Jurgen Klinsmann’s recent praise and stay red-hot against 1860 Munich.

  1. Yedlin has impressed me in recent weeks with his play at Sunderland. He is getting better with every start and you can see the confidence grow and the player he can become. He is getting better with his d positioning and his recovery speed is amazing. His crosses still need a little work but he starting to make teams account for him with his runs.

    Alas a successful Sunderland stint for a USMNT player.

  2. Anyone know when the 40 man preliminary Copa America Roster is to be made public knowledge?? I think i read it is supposed to submitted today and if true i’m guessing JK will wait till the last minute to drop it haha

  3. In the American Managers Abroad section:

    All games Friday at noon ET unless otherwise noted

    4th Le Havre at home vs 12th place Nimes
    3rd place Metz at 1st place Dijon on Sunday
    5th place Lens hosts 20th place Paris
    6th place Red Star hosts 11th place Bourg en Bress 01
    7th place Clermont Foot at 14th place Laval

    • And Le Havre win 3-1 after the other team’s starting GK got red-carded in the first half for DOGSO (Le Havre was winning 1-0 at the time, and the PK was saved). In their pursuit of Metz, this leaves them tied on points and reduces Le Havre’s goal differential deficit from 5 to 3, both pending Metz’s game on Sunday.
