Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Sabbi, Amon, and more

Hobro needed a top performance on the road at Vejle on Sunday to avoid relegation from the Danish Superliagen.

After losing the first leg 1-0 at home, Hobro dug deep and got a masterclass performance from Emmanuel Sabbi to pick up a 2-0 road win in extra time. Sabbi assisted on Hobro’s equalizer in the first-half before scoring the game-winning goal to advance Hobro into the next round of the playoffs.

Sabbi’s sixth goal of the season in all competitions came in the 103rd minute which proved to be the difference. The 21-year-old appeared alongside American teammate Christian Cappis for the final 55 minutes.

Elsewhere, Jonathan Amon scored for Nordsjaelland in league play while Andrew Wooten and Sandhausen did just enough to avoid relegation in Germany’s second-tier. Christian Pulisic registered an assist in his final Bundesliga match for Borussia Dortmund. Ethan Horvath and Club Brugge picked up another victory at home.

  1. Basically with the European seasons over I think with exception to injuries it was a good year especially for the young kids 20 and under. Future looks bright and hopefully players like Dest, Gloster, Soto and Mendez or Ledzam break into first teams next season. A good foundation for the the future.

  2. Anyone know the reason Brooks has been “Out” the last couple weeks? Is he at risk for not being available for the Gold Cup?
    When is the promotion game for Holmes?

    Otherwise a decent end to the European Season for our MNT players.
    Adams is back healthy, McKennie & Pulisic were getting 90’s. Miezga & Robinson finished strong last week. Only disappointments have been with our strikers (Wood & Sargent) not seeing the field.
    Bubble players like Green, Wooten closed finished the season as well as could be expected.

    Hopefully Berhalter will make good selections heading into the Gold Cup camp. Would like to see Boyd called up now that he’s filed his switch…and hopefully Holmes will get a call as well.

  3. Also why is Bobby Wood regressing what happened? I feel like he is burnt out with the game thats why he has not been dressing.

    • Once it was obvious that Hannover was going back down, they began a youth movement (that’s when Soto got some minutes). There were some stories going around on Twitter that Hannover has asked him to leave and if he doesn’t they’ll put him as an overage player in the 4th division. Not sure those are accurate but it does appear the club has moved on given his not dressing for matches.

  4. I hope Holmes team Derby County make it to the EPL for next year. It would be exciting to have an American that is playing on a newly promoted team.
