Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Soto, Heath, and more


Sebastian Soto continued his fine form for Dutch second tier side Telstar in a 1-1 draw with FC Oss on Saturday.

Soto got the start for Telstar at home and scored his third league goal of the Eerste Divisie season in the process. Soto was played behind the Oss backline in the fifth minute and made no mistake on the breakaway, slotting a left-footed shot past Bo Geens. The 20-year-old Norwich City loanee played 79 minutes in the draw for Telstar, continuing to get his minutes in the Netherlands in the early stages of the new season. Up next for Soto and his teammates is a trip to Roda JC Kerkrade on Oct. 19th.

Elsewhere, Tobin Heath helped Manchester United to its third league win of the WSL season, assisting on the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Tottenham.
