Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: John Brooks, Weston McKennie and more


John Brooks could make his long-awaited Bundesliga debut for Wolfsburg following a layoff as his club takes on another young American Abroad.

Brooks returned to the bench for DFB-Pokal action midweek, making this weekend’s matchup against Weston McKennie and Schalke a reasonable return date for the U.S. Men’s National Team centerback. Christian Pulisic, meanwhile, is questionable for his own match as Borussia Dortmund faces Hannover.

In England, Danny Williams and Huddersfield Town look to build off last week’s upset against Manchester United in a match against Liverpool. Meanwhile, in Championship action, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Sheffield United face Leeds United while Lynden Gooch’s Sunderland takes on Bristol City.

Elsewhere, Shaq Moore could feature again for La Liga’s Levante after making his debut midweek while Jonathan Gonzalez leads Monterrey against Club America.
