Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie and more

Two young Americans could go head-to-head in one of German soccer’s best rivalries.

Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie face off over the weekend as Borussia Dortmund takes on Schalke in Bundesliga play. Pulisic’s status remains a bit questionable after the midfielder missed out on Champions League action due to injury. However, Pulisic returned to training earlier this week, making him a possibility for this weekend’s clash with his fellow young American star.

In Spain, Shaq Moore and Levante face a tough test in a match against Levante, while English action sees DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle face Watford while Danny Williams and Huddersfield Town look for an upset against Manchester City.

  1. Thank you for the overview.

    Is there not any way to distinguish between starters, subs, and players further down the roster? Some of those you mention are not going to do anything but cheer their team on from far away. E.g.,

    A starts for Team X against Team Y.

    B is on the bench for Team X against Team Y.

    C is still on the roster as Team X hosts Team Y.

    And is there not any way to combine or cross-reference these lists with the TV listings? There too I would wish for some way to prioritize the most viewable vs. the least.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    • Perhaps when he at least makes an appearance in a league match once?

      The reaction to his 20 minute Cup cameo was insane and delusional! Failure of Arena to integrate him, failure of the system to recognize his huge potential, etc. Benfica is not even that great of a team now
