Americans Abroad Midweek Rewind: Erik Palmer-Brown, Weston McKennie, and more


Erik Palmer-Brown has been getting consistent time for Belgian outfit KV Kortrijk, and he earned another appearance during a midweek match.

For a team that may not get as much notoriety as some of the others in the division, Palmer-Brown has taken advantage of his place in the backline. The 20-year-old made another start for his team in their 2-1 league win over Oud-Heverlee Hueven on Wednesday, playing the full 90 minutes. Kortrijk is now 3-0-1 in their four Europa League playoff matches in the Belgian top tier, and Palmer-Brown will hope to continue helping his side to strong performances as the matches flow on.

In Germany, both Weston McKennie and Timmy Chandler were in their respective team squads but neither featured as Frankfurt eliminated Schalke 1-0 in the German DFK Pokal. Frankfurt will now face a tough task as they square off with Bayern Munich in the Final of the competition.

Timothy Weah made the bench for PSG’s Coupe De France semifinal clash with Caen, but did not feature in the 3-1 victory. Unai Emery’s side now faces Les Herbiers in the final on May 8th.

Elsewhere, Kenny Saief continued to start for Anderlecht in their top-tier match against Standard Liege while Matt Miazga started in the Dutch Eredivisie.

  1. I really enjoyed watching Romain Gall as a youth player with the NT. Glad to see he is finding some success at the professional level.
