While an injury to a U.S. Men’s National Team regular headlined the weekend, there were some positives to take away from the contingent of Americans Abroad.
John Brooks’ thigh injury put a damper on the American view of DFB-Pokal action, but goals from Timmy Chandler and Bobby Wood served as positive highlights throughout the opening round of the German Cup. Five Americans saw the field throughout the first weekend of the tournament, although Wood, who scored from the penalty spot, saw his run end prematurely with an early defeat.
In England, Geoff Cameron’s Premier League campaign began with a start and a loss while David Wagner, Danny Williams and Huddersfield Town provided a shocking win to begin life in the top flight.
Elsewhere, Ethan Horvath earned another win over Club Brugge, Tim Ream started in a 1-1 draw and youngster Jonathan Gonzalez headlined Liga MX play.
