Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Gonzalez, Amon, and more


Omar Gonzalez has been a consistent starter for Liga MX side Atlas since his move and the veteran defender came up huge in their win on Friday.

Gonzalez headed in the game winning goal for Atlas in their 4-3 triumph over Verzcruz, moving them to eight points on the season. After it looked like Atlas was going to blow a chance at three points at home, Gonzalez did what he does best. The 30-year-old rose highest on a corner and headed into the top-left corner for his second goal with the club.

It is Gonzalez’s best goal-scoring campaign since his four-goal haul with the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2014.

Elsewhere, Jonathan Amon registered an assist in his return to domestic play with Nordsjaelland. Christian Pulisic and Lynden Gooch also came off the bench for their respective teams and chipped in assists.

DeAndre Yedlin continues to be a consistent performer in Newcastle’s backline despite the Magpies struggles. Bobby Wood got a start for Hannover while Alfredo Morales and Fortuna Dusseldorf was on the end of a beatdown by Eintracht Frankfurt. Weston McKennie also played well in Schalke’s defeat to Werder Bremen.

    • I wonder if it’s time to give Alvarado another look. Her has been starting almost every game for quite a while now. He’s 26 so he could be a factor over the next 4 years if he has improved enough. Can’t have too many CB’s,

    • Bremen had announced early in the week that Sargent would not dress over the weekend and that he would play with the first team Tuesday in their friendly. US media picked up on the manager saying he would no longer be exclusively with the U23s and missed the friendly info.

  1. Konrad de la Fuente was all over Twitter this weekend. He dressed but did not play for Barcelona B last weekend probably because some players were on junior national team duty. He was not with B this week. He scored a goal this week in a 4-0 victory of Europa in 76 minutes for Juvenil A or U19). He will play against Inter midweek, in the UEFA Youth League.
