Americans Abroad Wednesday Rewind: Christian Pulisic, Matt Miazga and more


While Wednesday was a big day for Christian Pulisic, several young Americans had to settle for disappointment with their own clubs.

After winning the Dutch Cup last year, Matt Miazga and Viesse suffered an early exit in penalty kicks following a 0-0 draw in regular time. Excelsior also fell as Shane O’Neill and Desevio Payne couldn’t quite lift the club to a win over Heerenveen.

In Germany, Pulisic ruled the day while fellow young winger Julian Green went a full 90 in a lopsided Greuther Furth loss. Timmy Chandler also made an appearance, leading Eintracht Frankfurt to a win.

Elsewhere, Mix Diskerud scored a goal in Sweden while Eric Lichaj and Lynden Gooch were each on the side of a lopsided loss to Premier League opposition.

  1. Gruether is awful, but I’m glad that Green is at least getting minutes. Hopefully he stays in the starting lineup, regardless of how that team does.
