Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Novakovich, Ream, and more

For the second week in a row, Andrija Novakovich put in a Man of the Match performance for Italian Serie B side Frosinone.

Novakovich started, scored the game-winning goal, and played 90 minutes as Frosinone defeated Salernitana on Saturday. With a draw looking ever more likely, Novakovich came up with the goods as he scored his third league goal of the season. Nicolas Hass created enough space to cross a ball in and Novakovich headed in off the post to keep Frosinone in second place in the league table.

Frosinone’s unbeaten run in league play extends to eight matches with six wins in a row moving them three points clear of third place Crotone. Novakovich’s strong 2020 so far could end him some notice for the U.S. Men’s National Team’s March matches against Wales and the Netherlands.

Tim Ream started and played 90 minutes in Fulham’s 2-0 EFL Championship win over Preston North End this weekend. It was an important win for Fulham who remain in the race for automatic promotion back to the Premier League. He won seven of nine duels, made nine recoveries, and successfully completed three clearances. Fulham sit third in the Championship after the victory.

Cameron Carter-Vickers continued to start for Luton Town in their race for survival in the EFL Championship, Carter-Vickers played 90 minutes in a 1-1 home draw against Stoke City on Saturday. He finished the match with an 87% passing completion rate and six won duels. Luton are five points from safety.

Tyler Boyd earned his first league start for Turkish side Besiktas since Jan. 26th on Friday, helping them to a 2-1 road win over Alanyaspor. Boyd featured in the No. 10 position, completing 80% of his passes in the victory. He’s made 12 combined appearances for Besiktas this season.
