Americans Abroad Midweek Rewind: Cameron, Robinson, and more

Geoff Cameron has continued to be a regular for EFL Championship side QPR this season and the veteran defender helped the club snap a 10-match winless run this week.

Cameron registered one assist as QPR defeated Luton Town 2-0 away from home on Tuesday. The 35-year-old set up Charlie Austin for the London club’s opening goal and helped QPR earn its first shutout since December 15th in all competitions. Cameron also made five clearances from his center back position, claimed five headers out of a possible six, and made four recoveries in a strong defensive performance from the club. The victory for Mark Warburton’s side moved them five points clear of the relegation zone and sets them up nicely for Saturday’s home clash with Wycombe Wanderers.

Elsewhere, Antonee Robinson delivered a strong performance as Fulham earned a point at Tottenham while Chris Richards helped Bayern Munich II to a shutout victory. Lynden Gooch registered one assist as Sunderland advanced in the EFL Trophy competition. Timothy Chandler made a late cameo for Eintracht Frankfurt, who was eliminated from the German DFB Pokal. Ian Harkes and Dillon Powers both went the distance for Dundee United in a 2-2 draw with St. Johnstone.

  1. …is it time to start talking about Geoff in the CB position for the USMNT? Dude has been quietly starting for years in the Championship, which I put above the MLS (don’t @ me). So that’s above Aaron Long, etc, and why not tap his experience he could bring to some depth at CB (and d-mid as well).

    • He is 35, a real ageless wonder who is still playing well. Still I think we should use him only in a real emergency. He should have played instead of Omar G. in the Trini8dad & Tobago game where we failed to qualify. I think that was about the end of his international career though.

    • So has Ream and we all know how that’s worked out. We don’t need a 35 year old brought back into the fold right now. Especially if they aren’t even better then who we have currently.
