Americans Abroad Midweek Rewind: Ream, Dest, and more

Fulham are finding a nice run of form in the EFL Championship, winning their third match in a row on Wednesday at Craven Cottage.

The London club rolled past Millwall 4-0 and Tim Ream helped in the clean sheet win. Ream finished the match with a 97% passing completion rate as Fulham ran away to a comfortable derby win. It was the club’s second clean sheet out of their past three matches, which sees them sitting in third place so far this season. Ream’s veteran experience should help the club continue through the season especially when Fulham plays Nottingham Forest next on Aug. 24th.

Elsewhere, Sergino Dest came off the bench in Ajax’s first leg draw with Apoel Nicosia in Champions League qualifying. Matt Miazga helped Reading earn a point at West Bromwich Albion, while Giles Phillips played the full 90 minutes for Wycombe Wanderers. Andrija Novakovich, Eric Lichaj, and Aron Johannsson were among the players who did not dress for their teams.
