Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Christian Pulisic, Haji Wright, Geoff Cameron and more


Christian Pulisic headlined Americans Abroad with yet another stellar performance featuring a goal and an assist, but he wasn’t the only young American to make an impact in German soccer this past weekend.

Haji Wright fired his first senior goal over the weekend, leading Sandhausen to a lopsided win over Dynamo Dresden. Wright is currently on loan with the 2. Bundesliga club from Schalke, who sealed a 2-0 win over RB Leipzig with young American Weston McKennie earning an appearance as a substitute.

In England, Geoff Cameron and Stoke City stole the show with a stunning a 1-0 win over Arsenal in a match that saw the Gunners maintain a bulk of the possession. However, Arsenal never could get past Cameron and the Stoke defense, leading to an impressive victory for the Potters.

Elsewhere, Tim Ream went another solid 90 in a 1-0 setback, Bobby Wood played 87 minutes in a narrow win and Aron Johannsson earned a late appearance despite ongoing reports of an exit from Werder Bremen.

    We’re just over a week away from the Sept. Qualifiers and a large portion of our defensive options have been out….Brooks, Yedlin, Gonzalez, Fabian, Villafana (just returned). This has me worried a bit about what we’re going to see in the qualifiers.
