Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Christian Pulisic, Lynden Gooch, and more


Borussia Dortmund fans have been wondering where Christian Pulisic’s production has gone after a fine 2017 campaign. The U.S. international answered those critics with a goal in Dortmund’s 3-0 win over VfB Stuttgart on Sunday. Pulisic was bombing down the right flank and looked to cross into the box towards Michy Batshuayi but instead found the top-left corner. It was Pulisic’s fourth goal of the season, which propelled Dortmund to a much-needed home victory.

In EFL Championship play, Tim Ream continued his fine season helping Fulham to another three points. Lynden Gooch played the full 90 minutes for Sunderland, despite the Black Cats drawing against Leeds United. Antonee Robinson and Cameron Carter-Vickers also started for their respective English clubs.

Shaq Moore started for Levante B helping them to a late draw, while Brendan Hines-Ike started in Allsvanskan action. Elsewhere, Rubio Rubin, Weston McKennie, and Joe Corona all saw appearances off the bench for their current clubs.

    • Yes the numbers are a bit low, but you have to take into consideration that many of our veteran players (Brooks, Fabian, Cameron, Lichaj, ArJo, Williams, etc….), who should usually be players getting significant minutes, have been sidelined with injuries.
      Than we have a significant contingent of young/youngish players who are still trying to break into their clubs first teams (Handymann, De La Torre, Wright, Gaines, Weah, etc…). These players aren’t usually getting minutes unless their clubs are blowing out their opponents or unless there are injuries.
