Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Wooten, Robinson, and more

One name that continues to get praise is Sandhausen striker Andrew Wooten.

Saturday saw Wooten register his 15th goal of the 2. Bundesliga season, and his eighth in his last nine games. Sandhausen’s 3-2 win over Holstein Kiel on Saturday continued the club’s move away from the relegation places with three matches left.

After equalizing the match, Sandhausen took a lead in the 22nd minute as Wooten slotted in his fourth goal over the past three matches. Kiel would level the score before halftime, but Sandhausen would retake the lead in the 48th minute which proved to be the winning goal. Wooten won one due, one header, and had four shots in total.

Elsewhere, Antonee Robinson put in a man of the match performance in Wigan Athletic’s 1-1 draw with Birmingham City. Eric Lichaj and Cameron Carter-Vickers went head-to-head in EFL Championship play, both playing 90 minutes. Geoff Cameron also went 90 for QPR, Tim Ream and Fulham earned their third consecutive win, and Weston McKennie started for Schalke in their 4-2 Rivierderby win over Borussia Dortmund.

  1. What’s with Weah at Celtic? When he first got there he was scoring and/or assisting at a good clip even though not starting. Now he can’t even get off the bench. PSG can’t be too happy.

    • A couple factors, several Celtic players returned from injury, a new manager, as Celtic moved away from 2nd place Rangers Weah and other loan players like Toljan saw minutes go down. You have to wonder if Weah not being on the roster this week means he will be released for the U20 WC?

  2. Does it mean DeAndre Yedlin has officially lost his starting position at New Castle United to Javier Marquillo because Rafael Benítez is looking for a wingback with better technical skills? When I watched Yedlin play this past few years, I noticed he had become a mere ball shuttler at the right side on offense, even when he was isolated 1 v 1. Going back 5 years or more when Yedlin has not yet gained the positional knowledge and required skills for a reliable right back defender, he would have had the agressiveness and balls to go at an isolated opponent 1 v 1 when the situation arose. During the 2014 World Cup group stage and the knockout rounds game against Belgium, I was quite impressed by Yedlin’s aggressiveness and willingness to go at opponents, especially the slow-feeted Jan Vertonghen of Belgium 1 v 1 when he was isolated at the final third. Now Yedlin has forgotten what made him who he is and lost his edge. He’s no longer a sho in starting right back for the USMNT, IMO.

    • Yedlin is def not a shoe in at RB in Berhalter’s current system.
      Especially if that is where Adams will continue to play.

      to your point, he better get back to his fearless running down the flank roots, if he wants a shot as a starter on the wing.

      found Yedlin highlights from Belgium. You are right.

      He had a hell of a game.

      Forgot that Fabian came out injured early in that game.

      • i say it’s Almiron’s fault!

        lol. but seriously- prior to the winter transfer window, Yedlin’s role with Newcastle was exactly as you describe:
        “fearless running down the flanks”
        Rafa schemed for it, even.
        but when they incorporated Almiron, they tried to slow down their game and build stuff- which is a tactic diabolically opposed to DeAndre’s skill set and more suitable for Manquillo’s.

        Yedlin hasn’t forgotten anything, imo.
        He’s probably better at playing soccer- right now- than he’s ever been in his whole life.

    • I think it was 3 games ago that Yedlin gave up a foolish foul in the box that led to a penalty kick and a goal. He hasn’t started and has played very little since.He was usually starting and playing a lot before that.
