Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Tim Weah, Christian Pulisic, and more


Timothy Weah’s Ligue 1 campaign got off with a bang last weekend and the 18-year-old is seeking an encore on Saturday.

Weah scored the third goal in a 3-0 PSG rout of Caen last weekend, for his first league goal with the club. Now Weah will seek a similar performance as Thomas Tuchel’s side travel to Guingamp in league play. With several playmaking attackers returning for PSG, his playing time could be limited, but if he continues to score he will give Tuchel a lot to consider.

Elsewhere, the German DFB Pokal begins this weekend with Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie headlining the play. Both Borussia Dortmund and Schalke face lower-level competition, while several other Americans seek playing time.

Shaq Moore will seek his first start with Spanish second-tier side Reus Deportiu as they begin league play. Andrija Novakovich and Fortuna Sittard face a tough league test vs. PSV while Romain Gall and Malmo return to Allsvenskan play at home in Sweden.

  1. Now that all the leagues are up and running we’ll hopefully get a chance to see which of our players, especially the young ones, are truly making head-way and can potentially contribute to the growth of the USMNT…
    Germany – 18
    England – 9
    France – 2
    Netherlands – 3
    Belgium – 3
    11 – Sprinkled here and there across other leagues.

    Hopefully they all get consistent minutes and can avoid any significant injuries this season.
