Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Yedlin, Gooch, and more

DeAndre Yedlin returned to the Newcastle United starting lineup on Saturday and was a top performer for the Premier League at League One side Rochdale.

The veteran right back started and played 90 minutes in Newcastle United’s 1-1 draw at the Crown Oil Arena. Yedlin, who suffered a hand injury on New Years Day in a loss to Leicester City, was a lively presence for Steve Bruce’s side in the match. He finished with an 86% passing completion rate, while winning eight of his 11 duels. Yedlin recorded one shot on goal from a tight angle inside of the box, but was unable to help the Magpies avoid a replay at St. James Park in over a week’s time. Up next is for Yedlin and Newcastle is a trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Jan. 11th.

Elsewhere, Lynden Gooch scored a pair of goals in Sunderland’s 3-1 win over Lincoln City. Indiana Vassilev made his senior Aston Villa debut despite an FA Cup loss to Fulham. Matthew Olosunde and Geoff Cameron each played 90 minutes in FA Cup play, Shaq Moore registered an assist for Tenerife, and Matt Miazga captained Reading in a 2-2 draw against Blackpool.

  1. Portugal – PRIMEIRA LIGA

    “Keaton Parks did not dress in Benfica”

    #NYCFC – still listed on the roster and there is a permanent transfer in the works with Benfica for Keaton Parks and the plan is to sign the 22-year-old to a long-term deal (per multiple league sources)

    • Technically, his loan ended Dec. 31 and there has been no official announcement from Parks, Benfica, or NYCFC. According to Paul Tenario that will change any day now. I don’t believe Parks ever even reported back to Portugal. As for NYCFC’s roster there are a couple players on there that are no longer with the club, Miller and Ofori.
