Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Keaton Parks, Christian Pulisic and more

This past weekend was a memorable one for young Americans in Europe.

Keaton Parks made his league debut for Benfica over the weekend, coming on as a late substitute in a 5-1 rout of Tondela. Parks recently features for the club in cup action as he looks to complete the jump towards regular first team minutes.

In Germany, Christian Pulisic scored a late winner for Borussia Dortmund in a 2-1 win over Hoffenheim. The goal was his first club finish since September and his first overall goal since scoring the U.S. Men’s National Team’s lone goal in the loss to Trinidad & Tobago.

  1. Anyone know what the talk in Hamburg is around Wood? Is he finished there?
    Also, Green has been playing a lot… anyone watch and can comment?

    • As this point, without a competitive match for a very, very long time, does it matter?
      Well….strike that it matters…..I guess what I trying to say is that we have some time for others to come up the ranks. I hope it’s sooner than later. Our current crop is crap but if they can get some first team PT we have some good prospects. I know, I know…I’m tired of prospects, too. I’m ready for that talent to actually take off.
