Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Danny Williams, Fabian Johnson and more


Danny Williams and Huddersfield Town picked up one of the biggest results of the club’s history on Saturday.

The American midfielder started and played 90 minutes as Huddersfield Town upset Manchester United, 2-1, in the Premier League shocker of the weekend. The result pushes the club up up to 11th in the league.

In the Championship, Eric Lichaj contributed a goal in a 2-0 win for Nottingham Forest. He wasn’t the only American to get on the scoresheet, though, as Romain Gall also fired a goal in Sweden while Fabian Johnson scored in a lopsided loss.

Elsewhere, McKinzie Gaines made his debut for Darmstatdt, Ethan Horvath and William Yarbrough provided shutouts and Christian Pulisic went a full 90 in a frustrating defeat while Timmy Chandler suffered an injury.
