Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Guzan, Miazga, Morales and more

With his time at Middlesbrough moving towards its end, Brad Guzan has found some time in goal for the Premier League club.

Guzan started his fourth Premier League match in a row and seventh of the season in a 2-2 draw with Manchester City. The U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper made three saves on the day, but couldn’t do enough to prevent Manchester City from earning a late point on a finish from Gabriel Jesus in the 85th minute.

In the Netherlands, Matt Miazga helped lead Vitesse to the first trophy in club history in a 2-0 Dutch Cup win over AZ Alkmaar. Miazga went all 90 minutes in the win, which sealed the club’s spot in next season’s Europa League.

Elsewhere, Alfredo Morales was sent off as Ingolstadt inched closer to relegation, Danny Williams and Reading locked up a promotion playoff spot and Bobby Wood and Hamburg suffered a lopsided defeat that puts their safety into question.

  1. Morales’s season maybe over. Bundesliga has tacked on games to other American players this year after red cards and Hamburg and Bremen sat Wood and ArJo after their suspensions were up (ArJo never really got back in the rotation).

  2. GREAT: Miazga’s trophy; Villafana, Yedlin, Chandler, Cameron, and Gonzalez all get 90 so our defense is ok (get better Brooks!). BAD: I had high hopes for a few of Zelalem, Green, Canouse, Stanko, Boyd, or ArJo to break out this season. Not much coming from that group. Maybe next year? UGLY: C’mon Bobby!! Save your team from relegation!

    • Don’t be too discouraged by your “bad” group with the exception of ArJo, those guys are all young and would be toiling away in the USL for MLS II teams if they had gone the American route.
