Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Weah, Holmes, and more

By

Making your debut for new club whether it be on-loan or a permanent move is surely a day a player will not forget. Timothy Weah ended his debut for Scottish Premier League leaders Celtic on a high, scoring his first goal for the club on Saturday.

Weah’s sublime finish capped off a 3-0 FA Cup fourth round victory for the holders over lower-league Airdrieonians. Even before scoring, Weah was a lively presence as the No. 9, and even could’ve added an assist if the ball bounced Celtic’s way. Now after getting his debut out of the way, Weah will aim to play a big role for Celtic in all competitions.

Elsewhere, Cameron Carter-Vickers came off the bench and helped Swansea City to a clean sheet victory at home. Quentin Westberg kept another clean sheet for Ligue 2 side Auxerre, while Ian Harkes scored on his debut for Dundee United. Ethan Horvath remained in between the posts for Club Brugge but unfortunately could not help them avoid a league defeat.

Christian Pulisic got some minutes off the bench in Borussia Dortmund’s 1-0 league win over RB Leipzig. John Brooks and Weston McKennie faced off in Bundesliga play as well on Sunday, while Duane Holmes scored his first goal for Derby County.
