Americans Abroad Midweek Rewind: Olosunde, Green, and more

Rotherham United picked up the top result of the EFL Championship midweek slate, defeating promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough 3-0 on Wednesday.

American fullback Matthew Olosunde delivered a strong outing once again for the Millers, playing 90 minutes and eventually being named to the Team of the Week by the EFL. Olosunde has been one of the top players in Paul Warne’s squad this season, and did not disappoint at the Riverside Stadium. The 22-year-old finished the game with five interceptions, three recoveries, four clearances, and a game-high 13 duels won.

Olosunde watched as the Millers move two points from safety in the league table, and also extend its unbeaten run to three matches in league play. Up next for Olosunde and his teammates is a date with Swansea City this weekend.

Julian Green scored the game-winning goal for Greuther Furth in a 1-0 road victory over Osnabruck. It was Green’s sixth league goal of the current season, which has Greuther Furth right in the thick of the promotion race. The U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder did not go the distance for Stefan Leitl’s side, but once again showed his worth as he continued his streak of consecutive league matches played.

Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic made a late cameo for Chelsea against Wolves, but couldn’t help the Blues pick up three points. Weston McKennie also appeared off the bench for Juventus in a lopsided Coppa Italia win while Ian Harkes scored for Dundee United in a home defeat. Brenden Aaronson and Chris Durkin both put in strong shifts in league matches.
