Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Robinson, Saief, and more

Almost five months after his last appearance for Wigan Athletic, American left back Antonee Robinson returned to action and wasted no time getting back to his best.

Robinson excelled for the Latics on Saturday in a 2-0 road win over Huddersfield Town in their EFL Championship return.

The 22-year-old last played for Paul Cook’s side on Jan. 28th after undergoing treatment for an irregular heart rhythm. Robinson won six of his 11 duels on Saturday while also making five clearances and winning three tackles. It was a solid return for Robinson who has been a key part of the squad this season. Wigan’s win moved them to 44 points on the season, three points clear of the relegation zone which has several teams caught in the drama.

Up next for Robinson and his teammates is a home date with Blackburn Rovers on June 27th.

Giovanni Reyna impressed in his first Bundesliga start for Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The 17-year-old registered his first league assist and helped Dortmund to a 2-0 road win over RB Leipzig. Saturday’s win clinched a second-place finish for Lucien Favre’s squad who have one match remaining. Reyna also completed 85% of his passes while connecting with teammate Erling Haaland for the opening goal of the match.

Cameron Carter-Vickers put in a strong showing for EFL Championship side Luton Town in their first match back. Carter-Vickers put in a Man of the Match performance as Luton picked up a 1-1 draw with Preston North End at home. Carter-Vickers won 10 of his 13 individual battles while also completing all three tackles. The Tottenham loanee could play a vital role for Luton in their first eight matches as they try to escape relegation.

Kenny Saief scored his first goal for Polish side Lechia Gdansk as they earned a 1-0 road win over Pogon Szczecin on Sunday. Saief got the start for the visitors and made the most of it with a finish in the 27th minute. The 26-year-old Anderlecht loanee has gradually earned more minutes over the last few weeks and will now aim for more goals after today’s.

  1. Shaq Moore has been playing as a RM in Tenerife’s 4-4-2. I don’t think he’s good enough offensively to play the RW for Berhalter and probably not good enough defensively to play as a RB for NT. Certainly someone who should be monitored as potential depth but would seem pretty far down the depth chart.

  2. ArJo wasn’t with the team today. injured his foot apparently.
    also: why are we omitting Jalen Hawkins and Indiana Vassilev again?
    Vassilev dressed for Villa, and Hawkins subbed on in the 80th minute for Ingolstadt
