Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Christian Pulisic, Cameron Carter-Vickers and more

Christian Pulisic put in a spectacular performance over the weekend, but it wasn’t enough to lead Borussia Dortmund to victory.

The U.S. Men’s National Team star earned praise from his manager and a German legend for his efforts, but it wasn’t enough as Dortmund fell, 3-1, to Bayern Munich. The win sees Bayern open a six-point gap over Dortmund in Bundesliga play.

Elsewhere in Germany, Bobby Wood’s recent cold streak saw him relegated to bench duty against Stuttgart, while Weston McKennie put in another 90-minute shift ahead of a potential USMNT call-up.

Cameron Carter-Vickers headlined English action with an assist in a Sheffield United win while Romain Gall also provided an assist against Mix Diskerud and IFK Goteborg. Finally, Jonathan Gonzalez and Monterrey fell to a rare loss while Matt Miazga stood tall in a scoreless draw.

  1. BVBs sporting director or CEO whatever they call themselves said CP isn’t going anywhere over international break so don’t look for him to get the call, they must have asked for the US to let him rest instead of playing in this friendly. I would assume Brooks will be in the same situation.

  2. Agree on Antonee Robinson. SBI, can you include him? He represented the US U-18 team and while a dual-national he has never been called in for England. Unless we hear otherwise, he should be in this mix.

    Also, this felt like a mini revival week – ArJo, Boyd, and Stanko getting playing time!? Can I get a Hyndman sighting too or is that too much to ask…

    Also CCV is playing incredibly well. If his current form holds for a whole year (always a tall task for young players) he’ll definitely be getting a shot in the Prem next year, either with Tottenham or on another loan. It’s exciting that he could be part of a promotion push.

  3. Robinson in the Championship for Bolton went 90 minutes in a 2-1 win over Norwich City. He is as important as any of the youngsters we have for once simple reason. He plays left back, and has been getting rave reviews for his play on Loan from Everton.

  4. I think Bobby Wood’s gonna be on the pine for a while. His replacement is a 17 year old sensation. Props to Stanko tho for his Bundesliga debut!

    • Why playing in Europe is so tough. If you do not produce odds are they have a hotshot behind you ready to go.

      I think Wood needs some humility. When you watch him play if he is in position and does not get service he makes some form of negative display and not play through the play. Which, he does if he is not in position.
