Americans Abroad Tuesday Rewind: Christian Pulisic, Tim Ream and more

Tuesday was a tough one for Christian Pulisic, but one of his U.S. Men’s National Team teammates turned in another solid performance over in England.

Pulisic entered as a second half substitute on Tuesday, but the American winger couldn’t do enough to lead Borussia Dortmund to points against Real Madrid. With the loss, Dortmund has zero points through two Champions League matches.

In England, Tim Ream put in another solid 90-minute performance in Fulham’s 3-1 win over Eric Lichaj’s Nottingham Forest. Lynden Gooch also made an appearance, joining as a substitute in Sunderland’s lopsided loss.

Here’s a closer look at Tuesday’s Americans Abroad:

  1. Grayson was trying to depend on his veterans to get them off to a good start. Unfortunately, what he discovered was his veterans aren’t very good. He appears to also have been switched to a forward role so maybe getting used to the switch effected time as well.

  2. I agree on Gooch. I’m not sure what Arriola gives you that Gooch doesn’t, and Gooch seems to be the more dynamic player in the final third.

  3. Gooch is an enigma as he doesn’t get consistant playing time with Sunderland. He can play midfielder with great pace, and the coach even called him a center forward the other day (Game Gooch demanded to take the penalty shot). Not saying he’s world-class, but he really is developing better and better into his game each year. Curious as to why he doesn’t start as much but does provide good play usually when he gets time on the pitch.
