Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Gyau, Wooten, and more

Duisburg are at the bottom of the 2.Bundesliga table but showed some life on Sunday in a 2-0 win over Holstein Kiel.

Joe Gyau got a rare start for Duisburg and scored his second goal of the season, which proved to be the winning goal. Gyau’s long-range effort found the bottom-left corner to put the visitors ahead 1-0. They would score an insurance goal in the 68th minute to move four points from safety with two matches left.

Gyau finished the match with two successful duels, one block, and one interception. Duisburg next face Heidenheim on May 12th before finishing the season at Hamburg on May 19th.

Elsewhere, Andrew Wooten bagged a brace in a 3-2 road win for Sandhausen while Tim Ream earned another start for Fulham. Shaq Moore found the back of the net for Levante B in a 3-1 loss, Richard Ledezma scored his first goal for PSV’s U-19 squad, and Timothy Weah got the start as Celtic clinched the Scottish Premier League trophy at Aberdeen.

Duane Holmes returned to Derby County’s starting XI as the Rams clinched a berth in the EFL Championship playoffs. Antonee Robinson and Wigan Athletic earned a win at home against Millwall, Weston McKennie and Schalke earned a point in a 0-0 draw, and Christian Pulisic scored for Borussia Dortmund.

      • Aalborg, says he was on the bench.
        i tried to embed their roster tweet, but apparently we can’t do that here.

    • Transfermkt had him playing for the reserves which might have been the tweet you saw? They did not have him on the bench for the first team.

      • nah it’s the first team lineup for sure. exact same as it’s listed almost everywhere else with the exception of Lansing being on the bench instead of Sörensen.
        someone screwed up on Aalborg’s end, i guess.

      • interns running a squad’s twitter page can be screwy, too, so who knows?

        fun fact: while digging deeper into this not-so-important mystery, i found out they had a ceremony after the match for Lansing, and a handful of other guys who are leaving the club this week.

      • I realize you’re just trolling, but I’ll bite anyway.

        Setting aside the fact that they play different positions and have different roles on different teams, Pulisic still has twice as many goals as Bobby Wood, and four times as many assists. CP: 6 goals and 4 assists in 28 appearances (18 league, 7 UCL and 3 cup). BW: 3 goals and 1 assist in 22 appearances (20 league and 2 cup).

        Hopefully, this year has been a good one for Pulisic’s development. He’s had to deal with some adversity, whether it’s injuries or losing playing time to other players, but he’s looked good lately. He could be more clinical in front of goal (he probably should have had a second goal against Bremen), but he might be on his way to becoming a double digit goals and assists type. I don’t know if Chelsea is the right move for him, though.

    • Wow! Gyau???? A player who made 2 starts this season for a club at the bottom of Bundesliga 2? Right now, he should be below someone like Connor Lade or Will Bruin in the pecking order

  1. With Altidore still injured, Zardes in a dry spell, Wood not even suiting, AJ not suiting, Ramirez only 2 goals in 10 matches, Nova injured, Wooten is making it hard to not at least kick the tires. 10 goals in 10 games at that level is impressive.

    • I really don’t think it matters which one is brought in, who is going to give them the ball. CP is better on the wing right now and there isn’t many creative options in the middle. So they can start IV or Rob up front for all I care and they will have the same productivity. And that’s no disrespect to their skill level.

      • Typical 3G playing IV out of his natural position, he was a college defender after all.
        I’d like to see Holmes given a shot on the right wing with McKennie and Boyd a shot on the left. Put two guys that are actual wingers to stretch the opposition and with Holmes you can slide him into a CM role and slip CP outside and confuse the defense without even having to sub. I don’t get the impression Berhalter will do this but there is no better time with the extended prep time of the GC. For me bring in your starty11 that are available and then be pretty experimental with the rest because you have at least 3 weeks with them. However, I also understand the program needs results so the roster is likely to be pretty standard and veteran heavy.
