Americans Abroad Tuesday Rewind: Omar Gonzalez, Cameron Carter-Vickers and more



Tuesday was a good day to be an American centerback, especially on the goalscoring front.

Both Omar Gonzalez and Cameron Carter-Vickers found the back of the net for their respective clubs, leading the way in a pair of victories. Gonzalez’s finish helped Pachuca seal a Copa MX win over Cimarrones de Sonora while Carter-Vickers scored the lone goal of a 1-0 win over Bolton Wanderers.

Gonzalez’s goal came in the second half of Tuesday’s match, and it proved a game-winner. After seeing goals exchanged in the 15th and 16th minutes of Tuesday’s Copa MX clash, Gonzalez provided a headed finish on a corner kick, pushing the scoreline to 2-1 with the game-winning finish.

Carter-Vickers’ goal was also of the game-winning variety as the defender also helped Sheffield United maintain a clean sheet. In his debut for the club, Carter-Vickers took advantage of a scramble to rifle a shot home with his feet to earn a league win.

Elsewhere, Lynden Gooch made a cameo appearance for Sunderland defeat.

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



Lynden Gooch entered as a 71st minute substitute in Sunderland’s 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

Eric Lichaj dressed but did not play for Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

Cameron Carter-Vickers played 90 minutes and scored A GOAL in Sheffield United’s 1-0 win over Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday.



Omar Gonzalez played 90 minutes and scored A GOAL in Pachuca’s 2-1 win over Cimarrones de Sonora on Tuesday.

Jose Torres did not dress in Tigres’ 3-1 loss to Atletico Zacatepec on Tuesday.


  1. Amazing how Omar can play 90 minutes every game for one of the best teams in Mexico, but can’t translate that to the US team. Even when he doesn’t screw up, he seems incapable of playing out of the back. So many times in the Honduras game he would get a ball, only have US players around him and immediately kick a long, purposeless ball upfield.
