Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Johannsson, Harkes, and more

Aron Johannsson found the back of the net for Swedish side Hammarby for the second time in his last three appearances.

Johannsson helped his side earn a 2-2 draw with Elfsborg on Sunday, coming off the bench and making an impact. The U.S. Men’s National Team striker slotted home from the spot after being a second-half substitute. Johannsson also had three shots on goal and finished the match with an 80% passing completion rate.

The draw for the club kept them in the top six in the Allsvenskan table heading into next weekend’s trip to Sirius.

Elsewhere, Ian Harkes played 90 minutes as Dundee United picked up a road win over Ross County. Chris Durkin also went the distance despite Sint-Truiden’s loss to Anderlecht while Fernando Arce and Sebastian Saucedo both started in Liga MX play while Ventura Alvarado left Atletico San Luis’ match early with an injury. Andrija Novakovich started for Italian Serie B side Frosinone, but couldn’t help them avoid a first leg defeat to Spezia in the promotion playoff final.

    18 yr old American goalkeeper Brian Schwake dressed but did not play for Livingston FC

    • Wow East, your knowledge of obscure Americans Abroad knows no end. It’s probably because until two weeks ago he’d never played above Greek 2 Division and he signed with a club that would have been relegated if not related to COVID closures.

      • everyone’s gotta have a hobby! Well the kid’s starting in Jupiler now so he should be getting some love from more than just me 🙂
