Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Palmer-Brown, Brooks, and more

Austria Wien hit back twice at home against Red Bull Salzburg in Austrian Bundesliga play with former Sporting KC defender Erik Palmer-Brown scoring a late equalizer.

Palmer-Brown’s first goal of the season in the 89th minute helped Austria Wien to a 2-2 draw at home over Jesse Marsch’s side. The 22-year-old centerback won six of his eight duels in defense while also winning four of his five aerial duels. He made eight recoveries and two interceptions, helping his team to an important point against the second place visitors. U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team head coach Jason Kreis was reportedly in attendance for the match and very well could name Palmer-Brown to his roster for the upcoming Concacaf Olympic Qualifying tournament in March.


John Brooks remained in Wolfsburg’s starting lineup for a 4-0 win over Mainz on Sunday. Brooks helped the club extend its current unbeaten run to five matches in all competitions, playing the full 90 minutes. He won eight of ten duels, finished with an 81% passing completion rate, and made five clearances in a much-needed Bundesliga win.

Andrija Novakovich scored once and assisted once for Frosinone in a 2-0 Serie B win over Cosenza on Friday. It was a man of the match performance for Novakovich who helped his team jump to second place in the league table. He also won seven duels, successfully completed two dribbles, and made two recoveries.

  1. Kyle Scott is still recovering from groin surgery.
    The Scott who is currently playing for Newcastle u23s is 17 yr old Josh Scott (no relation)

    • not just Haaland.
      this winter window they sold Haaland to BVB, CB Pongracic to Wolfsburg, LW Minamino to Liverpool, CF Niangbo to Gent (8 days after acquiring him), and then loaned CF Prevljak to Gent.
      management is doing Marsch no favors

      • Minamino the big one in that group, scores and assists against Liverpool in group stage and then on the bench for Liverpool in the knockout rounds.
        Will be interesting when the Championship round begins in a couple weeks, points are halved and play against only top 5 other clubs.
        On the other side EPB’s club will be eliminated from championship round if they do not win this weekend so will he be made available for Olympic Qualifying?

      • correction: Prevljak was loaned to Eupen.
        good question regarding EPB, Johnny.
        i’d love to see him in OQs, but you’re guess is as good as mine

  2. What’s happening with Jonathan Amon? At one point he was going to potentially transfer out because he was so good, then hasn’t been playing / hurt with injuries. Yet he’s not listed as injured. Anyone know the scoop?
