Americans Abroad Midweek Rewind: Moore, Boyd, and more

Shaq Moore was the lone American player overseas to start this week, despite suffering a road loss in midweek play.

Moore started and played 82 minutes in Tenerife’s 2-1 loss at Huesca on Wednesday. The versatile defender won one duel, while making three recoveries and making three clearances. Moore, 23, has now made 10 league appearances for Tenerife this season, remaining in the fight for more minutes in the second-half of the domestic season. The defeat sees Tenerife remain in 18th place in the Segunda Division, just outside of the relegation zone on goal difference.

Elsewhere, Tyler Boyd came off the bench, but could not help Besiktas avoid a Turkish Cup upset on the road. Deandre Yedlin, Matt Miazga, and Owen Otasowie all did not dress in FA Cup games, Gboly Ariyibi did not play in Panetolikos’ Greek Cup draw, and Theoson-Jordan Siebatcheu helped Rennes remain in third place in Ligue 1.

  1. Shaq’s start is the highlight of the mid-week matches!
    good to see him gaining the new manager’s favor little by little.
    also worth noting: Michel’s used Shaq on the wing a bunch, in addition to playing him at RB & LB
