Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Romain Gall, Matt Miazga, and more

2 Shares

Romain Gall’s goalscoring run continued for Swedish outfit Sundsvall on Saturday despite their 4-3 road loss to Hammarby away from home. Gall bagged his fourth goal of the season, and extended his goalscoring run to three matches in the road loss. The 23-year-old’s left-footed effort was pushed in by Bj∅rn Paulsen in the 80th minute for an own goal, before Gall half-volleyed a right-footed attempt in four minutes later. He was only credited with one goal in the match, but he continues to be a dangerous attacking threat for Sundsvall so far this season. Sundsvall suffered their first loss of the season, but remain in eight place in the league table. Gall will look to add to his stats in his side’s next match vs. Brommapojkarna on May 12th.

Matt Miazga also found the back of the net this weekend, helping Vitesse Arnhem to a 2-2 road draw at Willem II. It was Miazga’s third goal of the season, and now his side will look towards a two-legged playoff for Europa League qualification. Joe Corona played the full 90 minutes in Club America’s Liga MX playoff against Pumas on Saturday, while a pair of Americans came off the bench for Club Tijuana.

Elsewhere, Geoff Cameron was unable to feature for Stoke City as they were relegated from the English Premier League on Saturday. Tim Ream started for Fulham as the London side fell to Birmingham City in the final match of the regular season. Antonee Robinson started for Bolton as they survived a relegation scrap in the EFL Championship. Christian Pulisic started for Borussia Dortmund, but was ineffective as his side fell 2-1 at home to FSV Mainz.

  1. God our Yanks abroad are really struggling except for McKennie. He is being relied upon by one of the top teams in the world right now. Pretty nuts when you think about it.

    • Agreed – McKennie (if healthy) looks like he’ll be a full starter for a Champions League team next year. I’d love to see him get a full season with 30+ games. We need a few more years in a row of young players breaking out like that… Maybe next season is Tim Weah’s? Sargent? Taitague? EPB?

      Also – SBI, as most of the Euro seasons wind down, it would be cool to do a bunch of report cards on Yanks Abroads seasons. You could do a bunch of blogs by country, or young kids and more veteran players, etc. Maybe highlight all of the players that desperately need a move (Hyndman), etc.
